Gold Coast facing welcome weekend downpour

The Gold Coast is in for a much needed drenching this weekend with falls of up to 60 millimetres forecast.

After a warm and muggy week, conditions will turn on Saturday when a late southerly change hits the southeast.

That’s expected to bring showers and possible storms, most likely in the evening.


But Shane Kennedy, Duty Forecaster at the Bureau of Meteorology says Sunday will be the wettest of the days.

“It’s likely to be peaking on Sunday with those falls of up to 50 to 60 millimetres at most,” he said.

“The rest of the week is likely to be fairly unsettled with those showers and the slight risk of a thunderstorm for a few days into next week.”

The other good news is the south easterly winds will see the humidity drop.

Monday’s forecast is for a top of 27 with up to 10 millimetres of rain forecast.

Similar conditions are forecast for Tuesday before those showers start easing back on Wednesday.

The BOM says apart from Sunday’s expected downpour, there is no other substantial rain on the horizon.
