Thunderstorms to Roll in this Afternoon0
Thunderstorms are already starting to pop up on the radar, predominantly in the Somerset region. They are fast tracking East towards the coast.
The temperature is expected to soar to a sweltering 34 degrees as a maximum today, combined with 63% humidity, it makes for quite a sticky afternoon before storms arrive to cool things down a bit.
The Bureau of Meterology predicts that severe storms are likely in some areas, mainly from the afternoon and into the evening.
Severe #QldStorms with heavy rainfall and damaging winds possible across #SEQLD on Tuesday. Most likely across an area extending from the #SunshineCoast hinterland north through #Gympie & #Gayndah. Slight risk of large hail too. See your forecast at: https://t.co/DaDNVUgLwp pic.twitter.com/YtcKIrAGOC
