Warwick could see up to 40mm of rain today

AFTER rain fell in fits and spurts around the region yesterday, Warwick residents could see between 20mm and 40mm fall today.

Weatherzone meteorologist Tom Hough said Warwick was expected to see rain or showers every day from today until Tuesday.

The highest chance of rainfall is today, with 20-40mm possible, followed by about 5-15mm tomorrow.

Storms are also possible later today.

"It's more likely to see those later this afternoon and into this evening,” Mr Hough said.

"From around mid-afternoon onwards is the best chance of storms today.”

Mr Hough said there was a chance storms could become severe this afternoon and if that happens there could be hail and damaging winds.

The weather system causing the rain is expected to linger for the next few days at least, he said.

"At the moment we've got an inland low pressure trough that's stretching across Queensland in combination with it being fed from onshore winds from the Coral Sea,” Mr Hough said.

"It's not going anywhere for the next three or four days.”

About 5-10mm of rain is predicted to fall in Warwick on Sunday and about 1-5mm on both Monday and Tuesday.

Mr Hough advised residents to stay up to date with weather warnings throughout the day.
