Waves, wind, rain on increase

AN offshore trough is due to increase southerly winds from less than 10 to more than 20 knots tomorrow and it will bring plenty of rain.

According to seabreeze.com.au, winds will sit at about 10 knots from a south-east direction in the morning.

By nightfall winds will be from east-south-east at about 20 knots.

Bureau of Meteorology weather observer Alison Skinn said isolated showers today would become rain tomorrow during this event.

"But it will peter back out to showers later in the week," Ms Skinn said.

"The wind is definitely picking up during tomorrow morning, which has triggered a warning for dangerous surf conditions.

"There is a trough forming offshore from south-east Queensland which is expecting to deepen over the coming days.

"It will maintain this onshore air stream."

Swell size is also expected to rise from 1.6 to 3.4m during tomorrow.
