WEATHER: Showers around CQ early in the week

Rainy weather is expected to impact parts of Central Queensland over the next few days, with the chance of thunderstorms developing later in the week.

The Bureau of Meteorology says a trough extends across the Gulf waters, Cape York Peninsula and into the northern Coral Sea, and is likely to drift southwards and deepen a little over the next few days.

Another trough extends from the northwest of the state to the southeast - the southern portion of this trough will move northwards towards the southern tropics, with a new firm ridge developing along the coast in its wake.

Here is the Bureau of Meteorology’s forecast for Central Queensland for the rest of this week:
