Weather Warnings - Severe Weather Warning

Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology


Cancellation Severe Weather Warning
For people in Northern Goldfields and Upper Flinders, Central Highlands and Coalfields and Central West Forecast Districts.

Issued at 4:59 am Thursday, 28 March 2019.

Widespread heavy rainfall has eased across central Queensland.

Weather Situation: A trough extended east southeastwards from the disorganised remnants of ex-tropical cyclone Trevor north of Longreach to the Central Highlands just north of Emerald. A tropical airmass persists over the area, but with the weakening of Ex-Trevor and the associated upper level trough, the widespread bands of heavy rainfall have eased.

Widespread heavy rainfall is no longer occurring. The surface trough may still produce isolated thunderstorm activity capable of producing heavy rainfall and potential flash flooding; severe thunderstorm warnings will be issued if this activity develops.

Flood warnings and a flood watch are current for parts of central and western Queensland.

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.

No further warnings will be issued for this event.

Warnings are also available through TV and Radio broadcasts, the Bureau's website at or call 1300 659 219. The Bureau and Queensland Fire and Emergency Services would appreciate warnings being broadcast regularly.
