We're Being Warned To Expect Extreme Thunderstorms

Summer must be on the way because we’re being warned to expect thunderstorms and wild weather across the sunshine state.

With flood warnings issued for Victoria and NSW as the heavy rain rolls in, Queensland is being told to expect plenty of wet weather our way as well.

Thunderstorms are predicted to develop on Thursday while three separate rain bands are expected to deliver heavy rain over the next week.

Parts of central Queensland through to Toowoomba are expected to get up to 100mm.

While Brisbane normally averages 20 days with severe thunderstorms, we can expect far more this season.

“The forecast is now showing 24-28 days so it will be a very active and severe thunderstorm season,” Sky News’ chief meteorologist Tom Saunders has told The Courier Mail.

“This often means supercell storms which bring large hail, damaging and sometimes destructive winds, heavy rain and flash flooding.”

The seven day forecast has rain predicted more often than not, with the sun expected to shine through on Wednesday and Saturday only.
