THE weather comes with a caveat this week - warm temperatures are on the way, but will bring the chance of severe storms.

Southern Downs storm chaser Terry West said Warwick could count on storms today, tomorrow and over the weekend.

"Areas most affected will be around the Eastern Downs and ranges," Mr West wrote on his Facebook page, Southern Downs Weather and Storm chasing.

"(Today) may see storms develop on the range and move east but Friday looks good for Warwick, Clifton and Stanthorpe.

"The storms may have high winds, hail and severe lightning but unfortunately not a lot of rain."

Weatherzone Meteorologist Mellissa MacKellar agreed and said it looked "very unstable" above Warwick on the radar.

"It is looking like that (today) and right into the weekend so there is a good chance of storms and hail," Ms MacKellar said.

Though many have been praying for rain, if the storms hit, there won't be much moisture in it.

"Sunday is looking like the wettest day, but probably only about 2-5mm of rain, but any storms could bring isolated heavier falls," Ms MacKellar said.
