Warnings As Extreme September Weather Continues For Qld
It’s been a wet September for Queensland with forecasters warning the extreme weather isn’t over yet!
With many areas already receiving up to four times their average rainfall for the month of September, the Bureau of Meteorology says some parts of Queensland will break records.
The news comes as Brisbane prepares for more wet weather, with the rain making itself at home on Wednesday and possible showers expected to make a return on the weekend.
It follows a week of heavy rain and thunderstorms, that had the experts warning of wild weather across the sunshine state.
While Brisbane normally averages 20 days with severe thunderstorms, we can expect far more this season according to Sky News’ chief meteorologist Tom Saunders.
“The forecast is now showing 24-28 days so it will be a very active and severe thunderstorm season,” he told The Courier Mail.
“This often means supercell storms which bring large hail, damaging and sometimes destructive winds, heavy rain and flash flooding.”
There are currently nine flood warnings in place across Queensland, affecting the Macintyre and Weir Rivers, Paroo River, Balonne and Maranoa Rivers, Bulloo River, Warrego River, Moonie River, Thomson and Barcoo Rivers, Diamantina River and the upper Dawson River.
