Heavy rain, thun­der­storms pre­dicted for Coast

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

RAIN­FALL may ex­ceed 90mm this week­end with to­mor­row loom­ing as the fo­cus of the worst of what the Bu­reau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy is pre­dict­ing would be very wet and windy con­di­tions.

Much would still be de­pen­dent on the po­si­tion­ing of a coastal trough due to move over the re­gion to­day but fore­caster Lau­ren Pat­tie said most places would see falls of 10-15mm.

There was a 50% chance of re­ceiv­ing 30mm or more and 25% chance of falls to 90mm or greater to­mor­row.

“It’s look­ing more likely we will see heavy rain,” Ms Pat­tie said.

“Some places could get more than 90mm de­pend­ing whether or not they re­ceive more than one (thun­der­storm).”

She said there would be sunny pe­ri­ods on Sun­day with the heav­i­est falls lo­calised to one or two ar­eas but pre­dicted falls to 30mm would be seen across the re­gion.

A weak south-east­erly change is al­ready be­ing felt on the coastal bor­der ar­eas around Coolan­gatta with the coastal trough still to form but ex­pected to move from south to north on a me­an­der­ing path.

To­day will be cloudy, have a day time max­i­mum of 25 de­grees, and car­ries a big chance of show­ers and the pos­si­bil­ity of thun­der­storms in the north­ern re­gions.

Sun­day’s wet weather would be ac­com­pa­nied by below av­er­age tem­per­a­ture max­i­mums which are not ex­pected to rise above 22 de­grees.

How­ever they are ex­pected to climb back to closer to nor­mal from there sta­bil­is­ing at 24 de­grees through to at least Wed­nes­day.
