Rain clouds move on

FARMERS hoping for another day or two of wet weather on the Southern Downs are likely to be disappointed, according to Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Andrew Cameron.

While there was a fierce storm warning on the Southern Downs yesterday afternoon, most of the action was east of Warwick.

The Warwick area received 8-10mm rain to 9am yesterday but the official Warwick station only had 0.8mm from 9am yesterday.

Further to the south at Murray's Bridge, there was 11mm yesterday as well as heavy rain during a race at Morgan Park Raceway which resulted in three cars being damaged but no injuries.

Mr Cameron said it would be fine today with light to moderate south to south-westerly winds.

"All the serious weather was to clear to the east sometime Sunday evening," he said.

"It will be fairly fine for the foreseeable future."

The next possible rain on the horizon is isolated showers and storms on Thursday but Mr Cameron stressed this was outside the bureau's regular forecast period.
