Wet weather hanging around before heat sets in

WET weather settled into Warwick over the weekend and it's not looking like slowing down over the next couple of days.

Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist David Bernard said there was still a good chance of showers and a storm in Warwick today, with the potential for heavy falls with the thunderstorms.

Mr Bernard said a combination of factors was causing the wet weather.

"A surface trough is in the area and it's been very humid," he said.

"There's an upper level trough that's been the cause of the heavy rain fall and storms, it's the same upper level trough system that affected Victoria, it's also operating in Queensland."

Mr Bernard said Warwick could see 20-40mm over the next couple of days, but the storms were more likely to hit to the east and north-east of Warwick.

After that, the sky will dry up again.

"Tomorrow there could be some showers and possible storms around but that should be the end of it, after that we'll see a dry change come through and it should be pretty fine and sunny for the rest of the week," he said.

It was a wet weekend in Warwick with 13mm falling across Saturday night and Sunday morning, but according to the bureau only 1mm has fallen since 9am yesterday.

The temperature will also be cool today with a top of 25 degrees, before a slight increase to 28 degrees tomorrow and Wednesday.

At this stage the weekend is looking to be quite warm, with Friday, Saturday and Sunday all predicted to reach 34 degrees.
