Showers and storms for North Queensland
10 December 2019
Widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms will develop across parts of North Queensland today, continuing through the week.
A surface trough in the Coral Sea will drift west, increasing a moist onshore flow. This will lead to scattered showers and isolated thunderstorm activity, particularly across coastal regions of the North Tropical Coast, Herbert and Lower Burdekin.
While flooding rains aren't expected, widespread falls up to 50mm can be expected for coastal and adjacent inland regions, with isolated heavier totals to 100mm possible.
Conditions should gradually ease throughout the weekend, with just a few isolated coastal showers persisting in the onshore flow.
