WINTER SPRINGS A FEW SURPRISES
ALLAL sorts of things can come from the skies – Hugo Hasselle braved rampaging seagulls on the Gold Coast yesterday, but for the rest of the state, it could be rain.
After two days of warm weather, some respite from the very dry winter is expected, with a 90 per cent chance of light showers or rain in Brisbane today, and perhaps even a storm.
The best falls are expected in the Darling Downs, Maranoa and the central west, with up to 30mm predicted and the chance of heavier bursts in isolated storms.
Forecaster Ri Rickk Threlfall said Brisbane and surrounds could expect 10mm to 15mm.
On Tuesday Brisbane had its warmest August day in six years, with 29.1C. Temperatures are expected to ease to 24C in Brisbane today, 2C above average.
With spring six days away, the city has had just 8mm of rain for the month. August and September are the driest months. WEATHER P58
