Gold Coasters warned to brace for possible storm

If you’ve got outdoor plans this afternoon you may want to reschedule.

The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting possible severe storms across a large part of Queensland.

“Severe storms are likely in the Darling Downs and Wide Bay & Burnett districts today,” BOM said.


“They’re also possible elsewhere over inland South East Queensland and the Capricornia Coast and highlands.”

Damaging winds, large hail and heavy rain is possible.

According to the weather bureau, the wettest day for the Gold Coast is expected to be on Monday, with up to 25 millimetres of rain predicted to fall.

However, we could also see up to 20 millimetres on Sunday.

The rain is likely to stick around all next week, with possible showers and storms predicted every day from Sunday.
