Possible storms to hit the South Burnett after cold mornings

THE South Burnett has been greeted by a cool and windy Monday morning with temperatures getting as low as 5 degrees, climbing throughout the day to a top of 16.

Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Peter Markworth said the winds should ease by the end of the day.

“It’s a pretty breezy morning, however it’s likely that wind will die down as we get into the afternoon and it should be pretty calm by tomorrow morning,” Mr Markworth said.

“The temperature is pretty cool at the moment, rising significantly throughout the week, reaching 26 degrees by Friday.

“Kingaroy received 9.2mm of rain on Saturday caused by a combination of two troughs causing a cloud band that caused heavy rain in South West Queensland.”

The weekends rain has caused a cool dry air map to move over West Queensland.
