Showers, storms track for the Gold Coast

IT’s tipped to get a little wet and cold in parts of the Gold Coast this evening, as a cluster of weak wintry storms and showers closes in on the city.

The cells, although at this stage are not considered severe, are pushing through from the west and are likely to contain bursts of heavy rain and strong wind, and drop temperatures.

The Bureau of Meteorology says we could wake to further showers and a possible storm early Sunday morning, with an 80 percent chance of between 1-6mm of rain falling in the gauge.

All thunderstorms generally produce lightning, and many produce gusty winds, brief heavy showers, and hail.

The Bureau will only issue a severe thunderstorm warning if storms are expected to produce any of the following:

  • Damaging wind gusts (90 km/h or more)
  • Large hail (2cm diameter or more)
  • Very heavy rainfall (conducive to flash flooding)
  • Tornadoes
