Some decent falls of rain have been recorded across the Southern Downs and Granite Belt over the last 24 hours and the good news is the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) says there’s a bit more on the way.

BOM says an inland surface trough moving east over Queensland will continue to produce showers and possible storms across the weekend for the region.

The forecast for the rest of today, Friday 17 January, is for a 90% chance of further showers and the chance of a storm with “possible” local heavy falls.

Tomorrow, Saturday, should see a 90% chance of showers on the Granite Belt and 60% chance of showers elsewhere, with overall rain chances easing on Sunday but still the chance of a late afternoon or early evening storm both days.
