Brisbane is set for a dark day of storms, here is what you need to know.
The severe thunderstorm warning that Brisbane woke to this morning has been cancelled, but we haven’t seen the last of the wet weather according to the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM).
Severe thunderstorms are no longer affecting the Southeast Queensland area (east of Dalby from Rainbow Beach to Stanthorpe). However, while the immediate threat of severe thunderstorms has passed, the situation will continue to be monitored and further warnings will be issued if necessary.
According to BOM, Brisbane is likely to still face thunderstorms this morning and afternoon, with winds north to northeasterly 25 to 35 km/h.
There has been a high amount of storm activity in northern New South Wales overnight and the wet weather is now making it’s way through Queensland.
Queensland Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should beware of fallen trees and powerlines, avoid driving, walking or riding through flood waters and contact the SES for emergency assistance on 132 500.
Brisbane residents should also be aware that Cyclone Nathan is headed for the Queensland coast as the clean-up from Cyclone Pam continues in Vanuatu.
