Forecasters uncertain whether weekend will bring rain

PARTLY cloudy skies for the rest of today and tomorrow carry at best only a marginal chance of rain for the Sunshine Coast.

The Bureau of Meteorology said there may be a slight chance of a late morning shower today due to moist south easterly winds blowing at 15-20km/h.

However, it was unlikely the region would see any rain before Sunday and forecaster Adam Blazak said even those expectations should be tempered.

He said weather models were not in agreement with a lot of uncertainty existing this far out.

Forecasters were watching two troughs, one pushing in from the west and another coming up the eastern Australian coast.

"At this stage late Sunday could see showers and storms," Mr Blazak said.

Expect a 23C maximum today with the south easterlies dropping out into the late afternoon.

Tomorrow temperatures would range from 12C overnight and 24C on another partly-cloudy day with just the slight chance of rain in the region's north and zero elsewhere.

Winds would be light throughout.

A run of sunny, 26C maximum temperature days would then continue through to Sunday with light winds and overnight minimums between 11C and 13C.

The temperature maximum would then again hit 26C on Sunday, but conditions would be partly cloudy with the chance of a late afternoon thunder storm on a day when winds would be light early increasing from the south east at 15-20 kmh.

The chance of a shower was expected to persist into next Monday where showers, a 22C maximum with south easterlies from 15-20 kmh.

A south easterly swell of around a metre would see a continuation of small wave conditions along the Sunshine Coast, with the northern beaches like to be the pick.
