Cattle Heat Load Outlook

Last Forecast for 2015 / 2016

A surface trough is situated along the west coast and will move inland as a weak cold front approaches from the west. A high pressure system in the Bight is extending a ridge from SA to western NSW. A slow moving surface trough extends form the Gulf into the southeastern interior and will move inland over the next few days.

Conditions will be generally fine across all feedlot locations, with good overnight recovery thanks to the High pressure system in the Bight providing clear night skies. Central and Northern QLD may experience some high HLI days, reaching into the 90’s over the weekend. However as mentioned overnight recovery should be adequate.
