18 October 2021:
Severe thunderstorm potential


Of note, severe thunderstorms are already underway across eastern Qld.

QLD/NSW: Widespread thunderstorms are expected across eastern Qld today, with numerous storms likely to be severe. Damaging winds, large hail, and heavy rainfall leading to flash flooding are likely, particularly for parts of the Capricornia, Wide Bay and Burnett, eastern Darling Downs and western South East Qld. A few supercells are possible with locally destructive winds, giant hail and heavy rainfall, particularly for central Qld, extending into the southern Wide Bay and northern Darling Downs this afternoon. One or two severe storms may spill into northern NSW throughout the day.

Tomorrow, Tuesday 19th October: scattered storm activity is expected to continue across the eastern seaboard, with a few storms expected to reach severe criteria. The coastal fringe from Bowen in Qld to Grafton in NSW will be an area of interest. Locally damaging winds, large hail and heavy rainfall can be expected with any severe activity.
