Supercell storm weekend

Posted by: Staff writers | 16 November, 2012 - 12:00 PM

4BC Drive: Supercell storms are likely to produce severe weather for Brisbane this weekend. Senior forecaster for the BOM, Peter Otto, joins Gary Hardgrave along with storm chaser, Andy Barber. 4BC advises you prepare for severe weather.

Weekend forecast: Saturday will be another warm and humid one, although cloud, showers and thunderstorms will stop the mercury from climbing above the low 30s. Most of the storms will again occur to the west of Brisbane on Saturday, however the city can expect to see the heaviest falls on Sunday.

Showers and storms between Friday and Sunday have the potential to bring widespread rainfall totals of 20-30mm in the state's southeast, with some places likely to see more than 50mm.

Listen: Peter Otto and Andy Barber with Gary Hardgrave

Australian Prognostic Chart - Saturday
A trough will deepen over the nation's east, causing showers and storms in northeast NSW and southeast QLD. Onshore winds will generate patchy rain over eastern parts of NSW, VIC and TAS. A high will keep southern Australia clear. A trough in the north will cause thundery showers.

Blog comments Your Say

  • mick, do you understand what the term 'from time to time' means? I guess you will just continue with the name calling when you run out of argument.

  • @ Roger, The ants were swimming.
    They have adapted over the years to swim during heavy rain.
    Adaptation equals survival.
    Amazing stuff.
    Still preaching your global warming BS mate.
    Reports have it that the Greenies are after more inert gases to add to their tax bag.
    Methane is next on the list.
    Watch this space.....

  • mick, it's quite clear to me but obviously you don't know or you would have answered accordingly given your insistence, from time to time, on people answering your questions.

  • Please be advised the "Supercell Threatens" article was in Saturday Morning Courier Mail, advising everyone that storms were looming. All you had to do was look outside and surely you would have noticed the humidity ?? The issue that worried me, was we are told to keep a battery operated radio on, however at 11pm on Saturday night, there was NO coverage from ANY Brisbane radio station on what was happening. We sat in the dark for 3 hours without knowing what was going on ? I am upset that 4bc no longer provides local broadcasts, it is very disappointing.

  • Thinking I'm going to listen to the scientists who have all the information and with the equipment and the scientists to analyze the information rather than people who have their head in the sand and a few scientists trying to make a few bucks from saying the earth is flat.
    Not sure why.
