Storms predicted to bring some wild weather

TOOWOOMBA and Darling Downs residents should prepare for wild weather with thunderstorms predicted to hit the region from today.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Dean Narramore said there was a small chance that storms would hit the region today with the likelihood increasing from tomorrow through until Sunday.

Images of devastation caused by a storm which whipped through Brisbane last week have proven a timely reminder of the destructive capability of Queensland's summer weather.

Mr Narramore said showers and thunderstorms would develop every afternoon across the region from tomorrow.

"All storms have the potential for all modes of severe weather," Mr Narramore said.

He said the most likely aspects this week would be wind and rain, but he could not rule out hail.

The weather is being driven by a trough which was yesterday moving from Central Queensland towards South East Queensland.
