Rain won’t hinder heavy horses

STORMS produced 15mm of rain in Warwick yesterday afternoon before moving on to east of the range and the Gold Coast, with today expected to be mostly sunny here.

The Bureau of Meteorology said there was a chance of showers in the southwest in the morning and afternoon, with a predicted maximum of 15 degrees.

Sheep graziers have been warned that cold temperatures, showers and fresh to strong westerly winds in western areas were expected today - with a risk of losses of lambs and sheep exposed to these conditions.

Sunday should be sunny with just a chance of showers and possible frost patches in eastern districts early in the morning, with organisers of the Heavy Horse Day at Mick Bradford's property confirming the event will be on.

The top temperature on Sunday is tipped to be 19.

Looking ahead to Monday it should be mostly sunny, after patches of morning frost and a maximum of 19.

The synoptic situation is that a series of upper level troughs will move east over southern Queensland during the weekend.

A surface trough extending over the eastern interior of the state will intensify and shift east, contracting off the east Queensland coast.

A cold, dry air mass will extend through much of the state in the wake of the trough, further enhanced by a cold front shifting east over southern Queensland today and tomorrow.
