Showers, storms possible as southerly wind change sweeps the Gold Coast

THUNDERSTORMS will be possible on the Gold Coast on Thursday as a southerly wind change sweeps the city.

The Bureau of Meteorology says 15-25km/h winds will shift from the northwest and blow in from the south at around 20-30km/h on Thursday evening.

This will bring with it an increased chance of showers and possibly trigger a storm or two from the late morning.


It’ll be a few degrees cooler on Friday as well, as strong winds persist from the south.

The weather bureau says winds will strengthen over the weekend, reaching up to 40km/h with significantly stronger gusts on Saturday, before easing somewhat on Sunday.

The strong winds will keep daytime temperatures around 21-22 degrees along the coast for at least five days.

Our nights and mornings will also be slightly chillier, with the mercury tipped to fall just below 10 degrees overnight in Nerang and Coomera.
