BIDWILL sugarcane grower Allen Birt is "a bit bloody disappointed" the expected heavy rain has not hit the Fraser Coast yet.
While other people are grateful the predicted storms and possible supercells have so far been a no-show, Mr Birt is desperately looking to the sky, hoping it will open up and give his cane the good drink it needs.
"We need some rain across the whole area, we're still hanging out for 50-70mm at least," Mr Birt said.
"But we need nice steady stuff, we don't need 100mm in an hour!"
While the concern of possible storm damage was on the grower's mind, he said beggars couldn't be choosers.
"I'm concerned but we need it to rain, whatever way it comes," he said.
According to the Bureau of Meteorology, severe storms are forecast to hit the Fraser Coast's western regions on Friday afternoon, and head east towards the coast.
Popular weather blog site Higgins Storm Chasing has predicted hail as large as 8cm, flash flooding and damaging winds in this time frame.
