A Severe Thunderstorm Warning Has Been Issued for Brisbane So Stay Safe and Dry

It just got real grey 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 and cosy, we suggest that you keep it that way for the rest of your Sunday afternoon.

And not just any old wet weather, either. The Bureau of Meteorology has reported that giant (its words) hail is expected with the very dangerous storm heading to the Caloundra area, while damaging winds and large hail are likely with storms near Redcliffe, Beachmere and Brisbane Airport. Hail nearing cricket ball-size has also been reported near the Glass House Mountains. And, even if you're not on the Sunshine Coast or Brisbane's northside, the storm warning is current for  the Redland City, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane City and Moreton Bay council areas.

In total, three serious thunderstorms are currently in the region and, taking a peek at the BOM's nifty colour-coded map, below, it looks like Brisbane's CBD could be hit.

While Queensland Fire and Emergency Services has been battling the state's catastrophic bushfires this week, it has advised that those in the path of the storms should follow BOM's advice. The usual common sense tactics obviously apply: secure loose outdoor items and stay inside. Their number is 132 500 if you need SES assistance.

Weather-wise, the wild conditions are set to subside after today — tomorrow is set to be a partly cloudy, rain-free 27.

Stay dry out there. And remember to check Live TrafficTranslink and BOM for warnings and updates.
