The rains are here

FALLS of more than 50mm of rain have been recorded in the region so far today since the heavens finally opened in the early hours of this morning.

The wet is expected to clear from the west during the afternoon and evening, with moderate to fresh and gusty north to north-westerly winds, shifting to cooler south-westerlies during the evening.

Friday should be cloudy with light scattered showers for Warwick, and fine and sunny conditions are still expected for Warwick for Saturday for the 2012 Warwick Cup.

A grass fire which was burning at Dalveen south of Warwick last night was extinguished by this morning's downpours.

A Queensland Rural Fire Service spokesman said crews had the blaze under control by 7pm, after it was started by a spark from a welder.

A residence intially under threat was undamaged.

The spokeman said intial problems with UHF radio communications on the fire-ground were resolved by switching over to VHF to get around a UHF "black spot" or shadow in the vicinity of the Sorrento Drive fire.
