Severe weather warning & Weather forecast for the next 7 days.
Central & South East Queensland. Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Maryborough, Hervey Bay, Bundaberg, Gladstone, Rockhampton.
A weather forecast warning is possible in the next 14 days and depending on the movement of certain weather systems, will start to develop in a few days time around the central Queensland coast on or around New Years Day 2021.
This could mean a difference between 20mm generally to over 300mm+ over the northern section of SE Queensland and up through the central Queensland coast if this severe weather event unfolds.
The video above shows possible rainfall rates developing in about 4 days time and also total accumulated rainfall.
Starting from about Yeppoon through to the northern sections of SE Queensland a wind convergence of NE and SE winds will develop along the central Queensland coast and slowly extend down the coastline over 4-5 days from about the 30th of December 2020.
Falls of over 300mm+ are possible. This Queensland weather warning is for intense rainfall developing in these regions. An ECL (East Coast Low) may develop and head in a southerly direction parallel to the Queensland coastline.
This system will bring in increased tropical moisture from the tropics over Queensland. Areas in western Queensland and also far northern Queensland will also see a dramatic increase in rainfall amounts.
Further updates will be added as necessary.
