Wet weather fails to hit the spot for Warwick

WARWICK residents may have thought they received a decent amount of rain last night, but don’t expect the drought to break any time soon as weather readings reveal little impact was made.

From around 2am, residents were treated to lightning and mild storms but Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Jess Gardner said the actual millimetres recorded was very scattered.

“Warwick was in the line of storms, which travelled from eastern Darling Downs through to Brisbane. but rain was quite localised,” she said.

“At Scots PGC, we recorded 6mm, but we also recorded 7mm and 1.4mm at other Warwick stations” she said.

For those who missed out last night, rain will return on Thursday, bur Ms Gardner said chances of a decent soak with similarly slim.

“There’s no rain for today or tomorrow, but there’s a better chance on Thursday for isolated showers and storms but I wouldn’t be expecting much rainfall,” she said.

As for temperatures over the week, Weatherzone meteorologists Felix Levesque said residents could expect the heat to stay in the mid 30s for the week.

“It looks like it’s going to hover around the mid to low 30s, with heat building up until Thursday,” he said.

“On Thursday, there’s a trough building over the region that may bring some rain and some instability that may cause some possible storms, with temperatures cooling down on Friday.”
