Another heatwave and storms on the way

AFTER sweltering last weekend, Warwick and surrounding areas could be set for another heatwave, with storms predicted by the Bureau of Meteorology for every day until Monday.

Forecaster Chris Joseph said the storms would cause temperatures to rise.

"There is a trough in the area," Mr Joseph said.

"There are hot northerly winds which are being channelled into the trough and causing a heatwave.

"There is a severe heatwave predicted for Thursday, Friday and Saturday on the Granite Belt and we expect that to spread across the Southern Downs over the weekend."

Mr Joseph said the prediction was not all that uncommon.

"It's not unusual to see storms forecasted for six days straight - we are in storm season after all.

"There are no guarantees there will be a storm every day but it is looking like there could be some severe storms over the next week."

Mr Joseph said "there was a chance of some decent rainfall" from the storms.
