Wet week ahead for the Granite Belt

THERE'S a week of rain and possible storms on the cards for the Granite Belt.

After weeks of mostly dry, scorching conditions, the Bureau of Meteorology has forecast a wet week for the region.

The sun will shine on Stanthorpe tomorrow, but rain has been predicted from Sunday onwards, meteorologist Julian De Morton said.

Stanthorpe and surrounds will face maximum temperatures of 29○C in sunny conditions on Sunday.

Sunday will be slightly cooler with a top of 27○C and possible afternoon storms.

Mr De Morton said the rain is expected to continue throughout most of the week.

After record-breaking maximum temperatures two weeks ago, he said the coming days were much closer to Stanthorpe's February average.

"That's pretty much because of an upper disturbance,” he said.

"We'll have some reasonable onshore flow.”
