Wet, windy start to autumn

TODAY marks the beginning of autumn, which will beenter with showers and a cool snap for the Southern Downs.

Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) senior forecaster Michelle Berry said a broad cloud over the Northern Territory would move south-east towards the Southern Downs today.

“Rain is expected with showers increasing during the day,” she said.

“East to south-easterly winds will increase overnight to gusty conditions into Tuesday.”

Due to wind activity and cloud cover, temperatures are expected to be about 24 degrees today and drop to about 23 degrees tomorrow.

“It will be a cool start to autumn,” Ms Berry said.

“Tomorrow will be fresh due to the gusty winds with rain periods.

“There’s the possibility moderate falls could be quite heavy, but there’ll be at least moderate falls on the Granite Belt.”
