By Jeremy Sollars

Rainfall across the Southern Downs and Granite Belt from storms last night, Thursday 14 March, was highly variable but more rain is forecast for the next 24 to 48 hours.

As of 9am today, Friday 15 March, areas to the north of Warwick had recorded the highest falls, including 46mm at Goomburra and reports of well over 30mm in surrounding areas such as Freestone.

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) says a series of upper troughs will move eastwards across central and southern Queensland over the next several days and should lead to more showers and storms over the weekend and possibly into Monday.

The forecast for both Warwick and Stanthorpe today and tomorrow, Saturday, is for showers and a possible late storm both days.

Warwick’s forecast maximum temperature for today is 33 degrees and 31 in Stanthorpe, with maximums in both areas for the weekend in the low to mid 20s.
