Storm clouds hanging around Sunday but little rain expected

THERE is more chance of frosts than rain in the Warwick and Stanthorpe areas over the next week.

At one stage, the Bureau of Meteorology was predicting a high possibility of 10mm to 20mm rain on Sunday in the Warwick area.

BOM forecaster Lauren Pattie said there were a number of storms around the south east but none were heading for Warwick or Stanthorpe.

"There are some rain clouds in the Warwick and Stanthorpe areas but not large enough to be producing much rain. There is some chance of a shower.”

The closest rainfall to the Southern Downs to 3.30pm Sunday was 1mm at Crofty which is east of the Great Dividing Range and west of Boonah.

A line of storms which have passed through the Brisbane Valley on Sunday aren't breaking any droughts, the best fall is 27mm at Mt Pechey, west of Esk.

Ms Pattie said most of the clouds would be offshore before sunrise on Monday.

"After Sunday, there is no rainfall on the horizon,” she said.

"There is a chance of a light frost at Applethorpe (just north of Stanthorpe) on Monday and more chance of frosts in the Warwick and Stanthorpe areas on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.”
