A medium to high chance of showers and storms with possible heavy falls are expected over the southern interior of the state. Showers and storms will also extend into central districts south of about Emerald, with the slight chance of a shower about the southern coast. High moisture and instability in the far northern tropics will result in a very high chance of showers and storms with possible heavy falls through northern parts of the Peninsula district, and a medium to high chance extending into far northwestern Queensland. Some showers will likely persist about the Cairns coast, with fine conditions over the southern tropical and central coasts. Variable winds in the far north and moderate to fresh west to northwesterly in the south. Winds in the far southeast fresh south to southeasterly.
