AN­OTHER wet week is fore­cast for Toowoomba, with show­ers and storms ex­pected to cover the re­gion.

The Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy fore­cast rain into the week­end for the sec­ond week in a row.

Fore­caster Ja­nine Yuasa said the weather would last at least into the week­end, when it could po­ten­tially drop off.

She said the show­ers and storms would be “hit and miss” dur­ing the day, with the weather bring­ing cloud cover over Toowoomba.

The bureau is fore­cast­ing a 70 per cent chance of rain to­day, with the po­ten­tial of three to 10mm of rain and a thun­der­storm this morn­ing or in the af­ter­noon.

Show­ers will con­tinue tomorrow with a 60% chance of rain and Thurs­day will see an 80% chance of up to 10mm of rain as well as the pos­si­bil­ity of a thun­der­storm.

“A high over the Tas­man Sea will move slowly east­wards over the next few days while weak­en­ing and will con­tinue to di­rect moist air into much of Queens­land,” the bureau said.

“An­other up­per trough will en­ter the far south west of the state late on Tues­day (to­day) and then strengthen while mov­ing north and east across the state on Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day.”
