Gold Coast warned of ‘possible’ thunderstorm today

There may be blue skies outside at the moment, but we’re being warned the wet weather may not be over just yet…

The Bureau of Meteorology says a possible thunderstorm could hit South East Queensland again today.

The weather bureau issued the forecast a short time ago, with a map of the locations most at risk.


“Severe thunderstorms possible in the SE with heavy rainfall, and a risk of heavy rain and gusty winds in the Capricornia and Central Highlands,” BOM said.

The falls won’t be anywhere near as heavy as what we have seen over the past few days, with only 1-8 millimetres of rainfall predicted to fall on the Gold Coast today and barely anything tomorrow.

A hazardous surf warning remains in place for Gold Coast waters, however the large swell is expected to ease throughout the day.

“Large and powerful east to southeasterly surf and swell conditions will slowly ease this afternoon,” the Bureau of Meteorology says.

“They are expected be hazardous for coastal activities such as rock fishing, boating, and swimming.”
