Fast-moving storm rolls through the Burnett

RAIN is falling and the skies are rumbling in the South Burnett but it's expected to be short-lived.

Jacob Cronje from Weatherzone said the Kingaroy area would see between two to three millimetres on Tuesday afternoon.

"It is unlikely that we are going to get up to five millimetres,” he said.

"The storm seems to be quite fast moving and isolated in nature.”

Mr Cronje said the best chance for rain in the South Burnett would be across the weekend with up to eight millimetres possible on Saturday afternoon.
