Stormy skies and rain­drops are a wel­come sight

Central Telegraph - - NEWS -

IT WAS mu­sic to Biloela lo­cals ears when the first drops of rain hit roofs around town at 9.07am last Sun­day, Au­gust 26.

There was one small res­i­dent in par­tic­u­lar who rev­elled in the rain.

Four-month-old Amera Nay­lor (in­set) saw her first down­pour and mum El­iza Nay­lor said she loved every minute of it.

“I’ve lived in Bilo for nearly two months now so we’re not used to th­ese dry con­di­tions at all,” she said.

“I’m orig­i­nally from the Gold Coast where it’s com­mon to rain.”

“We got about 10mm over two pe­ri­ods of short show­ers which lasted no more than 15 min­utes.

“Amera was en­joy­ing the noise on the tin roof. I think hear­ing dif­fer­ent sounds for the first time ex­cited her.”

Res­i­dents took to so­cial me­dia to share their joy of rain with small and way­ward hail­stones hit­ting some ar­eas of Biloela.

How­ever, sadly Janine Yuasa from the Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy ad­vised that there was no more sig­nif­i­cant rain on the hori­zon.

“There will be show­ers early next week but show­ers are very hit and miss,” she said.

Mon­day and Tues­day will be the days that bring scat­tered show­ers but it still won’t be enough to soften the dry ground.

As for the tem­per­a­tures, things will be­gin to warm up again as a trough moves to­wards the coast. The warmer weather will be short­lived as the cooler weather will re­turn af­ter the trough drops off.

The rest of to­day will be mostly sunny with light winds be­com­ing northerly 15 to 25km/h dur­ing the morn­ing. Overnight tem­per­a­tures will fall to be­tween 8 and 13 with day­time tem­per­a­tures reach­ing about 30.
