Wet week ahead for Brissy

Graeme Brittain, Saturday September 30, 2017 - 10:53 EST

A low pressure trough, combined with moist onshore winds, will generate heavy rain at times across southeast Queensland next week.

With some of the heaviest rainfall to impact southeast Queensland since the aftermath of Cyclone Debbie in March, many rain gauges could collect well over 100mm over the next few days. This includes Brisbane, and areas further north and inland, such as Bundaberg and Gympie.

Among heavy rain, thunderstorms are a distinct possibility throughout next week. At this stage, the main emphasis on storm activity for Brisbane is on Tuesday and Wednesday. Storms may be severe at times, leading to damaging winds, large hail and localised flash flooding.

Cloud and rain will also cause daytime temperatures to take a tumble, making it 'feel' more like winter, especially given the recent record breaking heat to impact the region.
