Severe thunderstorms are no longer occurring in QUEENSLAND.

continue to be monitored and further warnings will be issued if necessary.
Queensland Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:
* Beware of fallen trees and powerlines.
* Never drive, walk or ride through flood waters. If it's flooded, forget it.
* For emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500.

website at www.bom.gov.au or call 1300 659 219. The Bureau and Queensland Fire
and Emergency Services would appreciate warnings being broadcast regularly.
Residents are warned to take care outdoors as snow, hail and wind gusts send Tasmania into a big chill.
Following an uncharacteristically warm week for southeastern Australia, a solid line of cold fronts are on the way to bring us back to winter with a bang.
The fact that Terra Australis is a land of extremes is not a new concept.
