Wet weather coming

SHOWERS and storms are on the way early this week, with an upper trough system pushing through the Southern Downs.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Brett Harrison said this afternoon and tomorrow there was a slight chance of afternoon showers and possibly storms in the south-western Downs and possibly Warwick.

However, he said by Wednesday and Thursday Warwick could start to see late-afternoon storms with the potential for isolated heavy falls.

“On Wednesday we’ll get a trough likely to bring some afternoon showers and thunderstorms mainly in the western and south-western Downs but they could make it to the Warwick area late in the day,” he said.

Mr Harrison said temperatures were likely to remain fairly consistent, with a range of 15-27 degrees until Wednesday, before the maximum drops slightly to 26 degrees on Thursday.

He said it was too early to tell how severe the storm cells would be on Wednesday and Thursday, but said there was a possibility of hail.

“(Warwick is) looking at an upper trough moving through but it will be slowly weakening by the time we get to Thursday,” he said.
