Rainfall sweeps through region, but still more to come

KEEP your raincoats out for the last day of school holidays, it's going to be a wet one in Warwick.

The sweet pitter-patter was a welcome sound for residents this morning, with 11mm of rainfall recorded in the town.

Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Harry Clark said thunderstorms to the south clipped the Southern Downs, with higher rainfalls in other parts of the region.

Elbow Valley got a generous 26mm while Cherrabah received 25mm in the past 24 hours.

Patchy rain and the chance of another thunderstorm will carry Warwick through the rest of the day, with about 15mm of rainfall expected today according to Mr Clark.

"There is still some rain on the way for those who have missed out,” he said.

Saturday could also see some rainfall in the morning and afternoon, but things will start to clear up by the end of the weekend.

Mr Clark said the current rainfall was widespread to the south of Warwick, caused by an upper trough.
