A weak ridge extends along the east coast. Tropical Cyclone Fili [988 hPa] near New Caledonia is forecast to move southeast over the coming days, remaining well offshore of the Queensland coast. A high [1031 hPa] in the Tasman Sea will combine with Tropical Cyclone Fili and a low that is expected to form in the Coral Sea over the next few days, increasing southeasterly winds south of Townsville.
