LARGE hailstones are expected to pummel Toogoolawah, just south of the South Burnett this afternoon.

Weatherzone forecaster Tristan Meyers said there was a high chance hail would hit Toogoolawah, with the potential it would move inland and further north.

"The hail is at risk of being greater than 2cm in diameter," Mr Meyers said.

He said a damaging wind warning was also in place for the region.

The Weatherzone forecaster said he expected a band of showers to move towards Tarong and further north to Kingaroy later today.

"It doesn't look severe, but it could have the odd thunder," he said.

Mr Meyers said tomorrow's weather would be similar, with a chance of showers and thunderstorms after about 1pm.

But the forecaster said weather would fine up on Wednesday.

"The trough is weakening which will bring some stability from Wednesday onwards," Mr Meyers said.

Temperatures are also expected to hover around the high 20s right through until Sunday.
