Southeast Queensland is braced for three days of thunderstorms, including a potential Brisbane ‘super cell’, which are expected to roll through the region.

Bureau of Meteorology forecasters say storm cells with heavy rain, strong winds and possible hail are likely to cover most of the state’s southeast over the weekend.

The bureau also says temperatures will soar into the mid 30s before dangerous storms hit, including the prospect of a ‘super cell’ in Brisbane on Friday afternoon.

‘We’re looking at some falls in excess of 100mm, which can lead to some flash flooding,’ BOM forecaster Gordon Banks said.

‘Friday and Saturday are looking particularly active.’

Areas near Roma and Charleville have already received a deluge, with falls of 140mm since Wednesday morning, but there was less rain than expected on Thursday.

A maximum of 33C is forecast for Brisbane on Friday while the mercury is expected to rise to 34C on both Saturday and Sunday.

    When there is nothing to write about you can always write about the Weather.
    It seems Echnetdaily has nothing to write about.
    We hope that nothingness will rain down even more.

    Super cell. Sounds like a recent global warmist term. I remember when BOM just used to give inaccurate weather forecasts. Now BOM gives embellished inaccurate weather forecasts. …..
