Weather Warnings - Severe Weather Warning

Bureau of Meteorology
Queensland Regional Office



Issued at 11:07 am Thursday, 4 August 2016.

Synoptic Situation:

A low pressure system off the far southern Queensland coast will move northeast
over the southern Coral Sea during today. A strong high pressure system over the
Great Australian Bight will continue to move slowly east towards Tasmania. The
combination of these two systems is leading to a vigorous southerly flow over
southeastern Queensland, easing a little later in the day as the low moves
further away from the coast.

Locally damaging wind gusts to 90km/hr are no longer considered likely, and the
warning for the Southeast Coast district is therefore CANCELLED.

Locations which may be affected include Stanthorpe, Mt Barney, Springbrook,
Lamington National Park, Mt Tamborine, Coolangatta, North Stradbroke Island and
Moreton Island.

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.

Warnings are also available through TV and Radio broadcasts, the Bureau's
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.
