Flood warning for Capricorn Coast
THE Bureau of Meteorology says the Capricorn Coast could receive heavy rainfall of up to 150mm this afternoon and has issued a flash flooding warning for the coast and Central Highlands.
The rainfall on the Capricorn Coast depends on the movements of a surface trough off the coast which is expected to develop today.
The bureau is more certain of heavy falls in the Central Highlands region where up to 100mm is expected today. Weatherzone reported yesterday that an upper low over the Channel Country district near Quilpie, in combination with north-easterly winds, was expected to produce heavy rain over the Central Highlands south of Clermont this morning.
The heavy rain was likely to be “quite intense” and could lead to flash flooding.
BoM has forecast thundery rain areas for Capricornia today with rain periods and a high of 24deg C in Rockhampton.
Tomorrow's forecast is for more thundery rain areas easing to isolated showers during the day and possible heavy falls on the coast.
