Storms may ruin the Easter egg hunt in Brisbane

Kim Westcott, Saturday March 30, 2013 - 16:32 EDT

Brisbane residents planning an outdoor Easter egg hunt on Sunday may want to plan it for the morning, before the storm clouds begin to gather in the afternoon.

After a dry start to the long weekend, a low pressure trough pushing east may put a dampener on any afternoon outdoor Easter festivities.

A moisture laden atmosphere means that any storms have the potential to bring heavy rainfall which may lead to localised flash flooding. Brisbane and surrounds are expected to pick up 20-40mm with the storms with isolated falls of 60mm. Any storms that do eventuate also bring the additional risk of damaging wind gusts.

On Monday, there will be some early showers for those who choose not to have a final sleep in. The rain should clear with mostly fine conditions for the rest of Easter Monday.
