More storms on the horizon for Warwick
HAIL smashed Stanthorpe, wild winds ripped Clifton and a woman was almost washed away as severe thunderstorm swept across the region on Monday.
There have been widespread reports of damage after two separate storms wreaked havoc in the late afternoon.
Areas around Stanthorpe were hit with golf ball-sized hail, with some areas copping hailstones as large as tennis balls.
Hail smashed lights and windows as the storm passed over the Granite Belt about 4pm.
Clifton was also hit hard, with small hail, damaging winds and intense rainfall.
Falls of more than 50mm in an hour caused creeks to rise, catching some motorists by surprise.
One driver had a lucky escape after she drove though floodwaters on Felton-Clifton Rd at 7pm.
Clifton police said there was about 30cm of water across the road when the small sedan became stuck.
The woman was not injured and managed to escape from her car.
While Warwick missed the worst of the storms, residents are being urged to prepare for more.
The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting more severe weather later in the week.
Forecaster David Grant said there would be a fair bit of instability in the region heading into the weekend.
"We definitely can't rule out the potential of severe storms on Friday and into the weekend," he said.
"There's not going to be widespread rainfall across the area - it'll be pretty hit and miss."
