WIDESPREAD COASTAL RAIN ON THE WAY FOR NE QUEENSLAND

A Coral Sea trough system will push west tomorrow and Tuesday, making landfall later on Tuesday or early Wednesday across NE Queensland. This will result in some moderate to heavy falls of rain across the NE Queensland coast over the next few days. Showers begin tomorrow from this feature, but the heavier totals don't arrive until the trough makes it onshore Tuesday/Tuesday night and then are expected to continue into Wednesday before easing off on Thursday.
