Severe storms, hail on Gympie radar for today

IF you were praying for some rain, there might be some on the way but it won't be "drought-breaking.”

There is a slight chance severe thunderstorms and large hail could lash the Gympie region, but it all depends on the incoming trough approaching the coastline.

"It's not certain today, but a trough moving inland could see some rainfall in the Gympie region,” Bureau of Metereology forecaster Annabelle Ford said.

Tomorrow is a 70 percent chance that up to 10mm of rain will fall in the region.

"It's a better chance to happen tomorrow,” she said.

The trough is currently off the coast and will be moving onto the coast sometime this afternoon.

Ms Ford said there's a possibility of "severe thunderstorms” tonight, which could have the potential to produce hail and damaging winds.

From Wednesday onwards, the Gympie region will have clear sunny days with maximum temperatures from 25-30C.

Today's max temperature is 32C.
