Thunderstorm warning for Easter long weekend

DALBY is in for some mixed weather forecasts over the Easter long weekend, with predicted showers followed by nothing but sunshine for the rest of the week.

Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Alex Majchrowski told the Herald an upper trough will be bringing some rain from the New South Wales border into the Western Downs.

“There’s various chances of rain and thunderstorm activity starting on Friday afternoon and evening,” he said.

The rain itself isn’t going to be too heavy, however Mr Majchrowski said damaging wind gusts would accompany the rain and thunderstorms.

Heading into Monday, conditions are expected to change.

“Things are going to warm up a little bit,” Mr Majchrowski said.

“Temperatures will warm up to about 29 degrees, partly cloud and not much shower or storm activity leading into the next seven days.”

This week brought with it the coldest day of the year, with the starting on Monday with a chilly seven degrees.

Following the rain this weekend, minimum temperatures are expected to continue to drop.

“Minimums will go down as it gets dryer it’s going to feel cooler,” Mr Majchrowski said.

“Monday is the coolest day we’re forecasting with 11 degree minimum but the rest of the days will be around the 16 degree mark.”
