Your Valentine's Day weather guide in Gympie
IF YOU'VE got the ultimate Valentine's Day outing planned or still scratching your head - take a look at today's weather forecast in Gympie to see how the day is going to unfold.
While the temperatures have dropped, much to the relief of all, Gympie will still reach a balmy top of 32 degrees today- with the hottest time between noon and 3pm.
Following yesterday's small patches of rain, a trough that developed yesterday in is still in the area and may deliver "showers or light sprinkle this morning", a Bureau of Meteorology spokesman said
While there is the chance of a storm in the greater area this afternoon he said there is only a slight chance Gympie will receive anything, with the main event going to our inland neighbours, but showers may still persist in the afternoon.
So if you don't mind a little rain tickle from the rain that picnic or lovely long walk is still on the cards, but if you'd prefer not to risk it here are 5 things to do in Gympie when it's raining:
