Rain to con­tinue over week­end in War­wick

Warwick Daily News - - NEWS - El­yse Wurm

THE sound of rain on the roof isn’t dis­ap­pear­ing any time soon as a wet week­end lies ahead for War­wick.

Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy fore­caster Aditi Sha­ran said an up­per trough was caus­ing the rain­fall to­day and later in the week­end.

“On Satur­day there is a high chance of show­ers and rain, mostly in the eastern Dar­ling Downs area, which in­cludes War­wick,” she said.

“We can ex­pect show­ers on Sun­day.”

Be­tween 5 and 10mm of rain is ex­pected to fall to­day and to­mor­row in War­wick.

Miss Sha­ran said there was also a chance of storms in War­wick to­day, but they were un­likely to be se­vere.

More se­vere storms are ex­pected to hit the north­ern Dar­ling Downs area, which have al­ready been af­fected by wild weather this week.

Any­one go­ing to the races might want to rug up for the oc­ca­sion, as War­wick is ex­pected to reach a top of a measly 18 de­grees to­day.

Tem­per­a­tures will climb to just 21 de­grees to­mor­row, well below the Oc­to­ber av­er­age tem­per­a­ture of 26.

Winds will con­tinue blow­ing east­erly at about 25–35km/h, de­creas­ing to about 15km/h to­day.

The chance of rain re­mains high into the start of next week, with up to 4mm pre­dicted to fall on Mon­day and up to 6mm on Tues­day and Wed­nes­day.
