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

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 Thursday night.

And not just any old wet weather, either. The Bureau of Meteorology has reported that damaging winds and large hail is on its way — and it's looking like it'll affect a big chunk of Queensland, too, with Brisbane City, Ipswich, Logan, Gold Coast, Redland City and parts of Somerset, Scenic Rim and Moreton Bay Council Areas all set to be hit.

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 is going to be hit head-on.

Winds of over 80 kilometres per hour have already been recorded at Gatton and Warwick, too — and with winds that strong come falling trees (and sometimes falling powerlines), so Queensland Fire and Emergency Services has advised Brisbanites to secure loose outdoor items and stay inside. Their number is 132 500 if you need SES assistance.

The wild weather looks like it will continue into the evening, but tomorrow is set to be a sunny, rain-free 28.

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