“It will be a bit showery today, however not expecting much in the way of heavy falls outside the chance of a shower and thunderstorm this afternoon to the South of Kingaroy,” Mr Kennedy said.

“Tomorrow and Wednesday there will be a better chance of showers, a chance of a sever thunderstorm and by Thursday it’s likely to still be showery, however it will be heading towards the coast.”
