PUT away your umbrellas and ponchos because the storm warnings have cleared and the weekend is set to be fine and sunny.

Stanthorpe race goers will be pleased to know the forecast for today means after two years of being rained or hailed out the Central Motors Stanthorpe Holden Cup will go ahead with a full local race schedule.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Andrew Busalino said warmer spring conditions were on the way.

"We are expecting northerly winds to pick up and bring warm winds," Mr Busalino said.

"Tomorrow and onwards temperatures will be up in the early to mid-thirties and the minimum should be around the mid-teens.

"After the weekend, temperatures are expected to drop down to 8-10 degrees with a few troughs pushing across the area early next week."

Mr Busalino said the absence of the severe storms predicted earlier in the week for the region was not uncommon.

"When it comes to storms, the more moisture and heat the more likely a storm is to develop but that didn't happen," he said.

"In simple terms that is why the storms didn't eventuate.

"Some isolated shower activity is possible on the eastern side of the Southern Downs though. However, the chance of rain in Stanthorpe is even less than in Warwick."

Gates open at Armstrong Park at 10.30am and free buses from Rogers St behind the Country Club start running at 11am and general entry tickets are $20.
