    South Easterly winds are expected to dominate the entire forecast region throughout the day. These wind are expected to be responsible for producing increased showers over Coastal areas of the South East Coast, Fraser Coast and Eastern Wide Bay areas during the day – with these showers increasing as the day progresses into the night, but remaining fairly isolated overall still. Falls of 5-10mm are expected to develop over Coastal areas of the Sunshine Coast and into the Fraser Coast with lighter falls occurring elsewhere over these areas. These showers are expected to be infrequent enough that prolonged periods of sunshine are still expected to occur.

    Across Inland areas, these same winds are expected to remain in place, however the low level moisture is expected to struggle to overcome the upper level dry air which will likely result in further widespread fine and sunny conditions along with clear-ish skies during the early morning allowing heating to escape still and lead to below average minimums and some very marginally possible patchy frost over the most frost prone areas of the Granite Belt & Southern Downs.

    Temperatures: Brisbane 12-23ºc, Ipswich 6-23ºc, Beaudesert 6-23ºc, Gold Coast Seaway 13-22ºc, Gold Coast Inland 3-22ºc, Coolangatta 12-22ºc, Sunshine Coast 11-22ºc, Gympie 7-23ºc, Hervey Bay 12-25ºc, Maryborough 10-25ºc, Kingaroy 2-21ºc, Bundaberg 11-25ºc, Gayndah 7-25ºc, Gatton 6-22ºc, Toowoomba 6-18ºc, Warwick 2-19ºc, Dalby 3-22ºc, Stanthorpe 1-17ºc, Roma -1ºc to 22ºc, St George 2-22ºc.

    Wednesday, May 19th, 2021

    South Easterly winds are expected to continue over the South East Coast & Wide Bay areas during Wednesday with these winds veering more Easterly across the rest of the forecast region. These winds over Coastal areas will likely continue to produce patchy, isolated, hit and miss, light, infrequent showers throughout the day across the South East Coast, Wide Bay & Fraser Coast areas with only light falls of less than 5mm expected for most areas and some slightly higher falls possible around the Fraser Coast during the day.

    Across Inland areas, these winds are expected to veer more Easterly than South Easterly and these winds are also expected to interact with continued dry air aloft which will help produce widespread fine and sunny conditions across the region. The winds overall will help feed some very low level moisture in over Inland areas which will likely increase morning minimums compared to previous days, but cooler than average temperatures are still expected across Inland areas for May standards.

    Temperatures: Brisbane 13-23ºc, Ipswich 8-23ºc, Beaudesert 8-23ºc, Gold Coast Seaway 15-23ºc, Gold Coast Inland 7-23ºc, Coolangatta 13-23ºc, Sunshine Coast 13-22ºc, Gympie 11-23ºc, Hervey Bay 14-24ºc, Maryborough 14–24ºc, Kingaroy 7-21ºc, Bundaberg 14-24ºc, Gayndah 10-24ºc, Gatton 9-22ºc, Toowoomba 8-18ºc, Warwick 6-20ºc, Dalby 6-22ºc, Stanthorpe 4-18ºc, Roma 3-24ºc, St George 5-23ºc.

    Thursday, May 20th, 2021

    South Easterly winds are expected to impact the South East Coast & Wide Bay areas during the day. These winds are expected to become marginally favourable for some patchy showers over the Sunshine Coast, Fraser Coast, Bribie region and Gold Coast with only light, patchy, hit and miss activity occurring across these areas anyway which will severely limit rainfall accumulations. Across the remainder of both the South East Coast & Wide Bay areas – mostly fine and sunny conditions are expected.

    Across Inland areas, winds are expected to veer slightly more Easterly and whilst this may be enough to feed low level moisture in over Inland areas… the low level moisture is expected to be countered by dry air aloft which will continue to result in widespread fine and sunny conditions.

    Temperatures: Brisbane 14-23ºc, Ipswich 9-24ºc, Beaudesert 9-24ºc, Gold Coast Seaway 15-23ºc, Gold Coast Inland 8-23ºc, Coolangatta 13-23ºc, Sunshine Coast 14-22ºc, Gympie 12-23ºc, Hervey Bay 15-25ºc, Maryborough 14–25ºc, Kingaroy 7-22ºc, Bundaberg 14-25ºc, Gayndah 10-25ºc, Gatton 10-23ºc, Toowoomba 9-19ºc, Warwick 6-21ºc, Dalby 7-23ºc, Stanthorpe 4-19ºc, Roma 5-24ºc, St George 7-24ºc.

    Friday, May 21st, 2021

    South Easterly winds are expected to continue across the South East Coast, Wide Bay & Fraser Coast areas which will likely result in some very hit and miss, very patchy, very light showers over these areas during the day along with most shower activity remaining heavily confined to the immediate Coastline and offshore Islands. This activity is expected to result in falls of less than 5mm across all areas, with the better falls poetically being either over the offshore Islands or Sunshine Coast.

    Across the remainder of both districts and into Inland areas, dry air aloft is expected to interact with the South Easterly flow and this will likely suppress any low level moisture and result in mostly fine and sunny conditions.

    Temperatures: Brisbane 13-24ºc, Ipswich 8-24ºc, Beaudesert 8-24ºc, Gold Coast Seaway 13-23ºc, Gold Coast Inland 7-24ºc, Coolangatta 15-23ºc, Sunshine Coast 13-23ºc, Gympie 11-23ºc, Hervey Bay 15-25ºc, Maryborough 14–24ºc, Kingaroy 7-22ºc, Bundaberg 14-25ºc, Gayndah 10-25ºc, Gatton 9-23ºc, Toowoomba 9-19ºc, Warwick 6-20ºc, Dalby 7-22ºc, Stanthorpe 4-18ºc, Roma 5-24ºc, St George 7-24ºc.

    Extended forecast for Saturday 22nd of May to Monday 24th of May 2021.

    Showers are expected to continue over the South East Coast & Fraser Coast during Saturday with the better falls occurring over the offshore Islands and Sunshine Coast region – the remainder of the forecast region is expected to see fine and sunny conditions. Showers are expected to continue over extreme Coastal areas of the Fraser Coast & South East Coast during Sunday with the better falls remaining over the offshore Islands and Sunshine Coast and rainfall accumulations in general are expected to increase compared to previous days. Showers are expected to continue once again during Monday across the Fraser Coast & South East Coast with the rest of the forecast region remaining mostly fine. Overall showers may extend slightly more Inland but they are expected to be lighter also compared to Sunday.
