A Severe Thunderstorm Warning Has Been Issued for Brisbane So Stay Indoors

Stay safe and dry out there — we're expecting lots of rain, hail and wind.

It just got real dark in Brisbane. And in Brisbane during the warmer months, that only means one thing: a storm is coming. So if you're currently reading this from somewhere dry, warm and cosy, we suggest that you keep it that way for the rest of your Friday night.

And not just any old wet weather, either. The Bureau of Meteorology has reported that damaging winds, heavy rainfall and large hail is on its way, which is looking to affect the CBD and surrounding regions. This could lead to flash flooding in the city. Kobble Creek, just 45 minutes northwest of Brisbane, copped 85mm in just an hour earlier this afternoon.

Taking a peek at its nifty colour-coded map, below, it looks like Brisbane is going to hit head-on.

With storms come falling trees (and sometimes falling powerlines) and Queensland Fire and Emergency Services has advised Brisbanites to secure loose outdoor items, stay inside and "catch up on all the social media you missed yesterday". Their number is 132 500 if you need SES assistance.

The wild weather looks like it will continue into the evening and possibly into tomorrow, too.

Stay dry out there. And remember to check Live Traffic, Translink and BOM for warnings and updates.
