Thunderstorms continuing to increase in coverage and intensity over central and western parts of the state and inland from the central coast.

Weather Situation: A very moist and unstable airmass extends across central parts of the state. A slow-moving trough system extending through the Warrego and Maranoa northeastwards to the central coast will act as a focus for thunderstorm development through the afternoon. An upper trough moving across central Australia is leading to the development of severe thunderstorms over western Queensland.

Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce damaging winds and heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding over the next several hours in the Maranoa and Warrego and parts of the Central Coast and Whitsundays, Central Highlands and Coalfields, Central West and Darling Downs and Granite Belt districts. Locations which may be affected include Roma, Charleville, Emerald, Clermont, Blackwater and Moranbah.

Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce damaging winds, large hailstones and heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding over the next several hours in parts of the North West and Channel Country districts.
