Rain and hail downpour
DRIVING to Warwick on the New England Highway yesterday afternoon, Nikki Malone couldn’t help but find a safe place to pull over and marvel at the rainbow which straddled the road while Allora experienced a drenching of rain and hail.
“I was driving along and the girls woke up and were amazed by the beautiful rainbow,” Mrs Malone said.
“I can’t believe how vibrant the colours are.”
A few kilometres down the road, Allora received a downpour, with small hailstones descending about 3pm yesterday, quickly submerging Herbert Street with water while the stormwater drains struggled to cope.
“This always happens when there’s heavy rain,” Allora resident Jon Constable said.
The WeatherZone Warwick forecast predicted sun today with rain reappearing on the weekend with an 80 per cent chance of a wet one.
So far this month, the Rose City’s lowest temperature was 1.6 degrees on Saturday, while the hottest May day was last Wednesday with a top of 25.9 degrees, 3.8 degrees shy of the 29.7 degree record which was recorded on May 7 back in 2007.
