THE Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe thunderstorm warning for the Southern Downs.

It is tracking a slow moving storm cell, north west of Warwick, between Pratten and Allora.

"It's likely to produce heavy falls that could lead to flash flooding," BOM Meteorologist Sam Campbell said.

"We have already seen some falls up to 36mm in 30 minutes in that area."

Residents could be in for a wet night with follow-up storms expected later tonight.
