Golf ball-sized hail has lashed parts of south-east Queensland on Tuesday afternoon, as the Bureau of Meteorology tracks a number of storms across the region.

Severe thunderstorm warnings have now been cancelled for residents in Logan, Ipswich, the Scenic Rim and Brisbane City Council Areas.

The bureau continues to monitor storms across the south-east, although it said the immediate threat had passed.

There is a general warning for the south-east coast district.

The storm cells rained down large hail on Kooralbyn, south-west of Brisbane.
