Storms brewing: Forecaster explains what it will mean for us

WHILE it's too early to tell, if a decent storm hits the region this afternoon we could be lucky to get 10-15mm of rain in areas of the Fraser Coast. 

The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting a shower or two and a possible storm for the region as a trough moves through the south east of the state this afternoon. 

So what does this mean for us?

Weather forecaster Julian De Morton said at this stage there is a 50% chance of a shower or storm in Hervey Bay and Maryborough. 

While we won't see much in the way of rain, Mr De Morton said 1-5mm is predicted but if it is a decent sized storm we could see more falls.

 Being a storm it will  be hard to predict exactly where in the region showers will fall. 

"You could get a shower and storm and your neighbour may not," Mr Morton said. 

"If it is a decent storm then you could see up to 10-15mm but the real problem today is how quickly the storms are expected to move."

Looking ahead there is a chance we could see a few showers in the early hours of Friday morning. 

The weekend is looking fine with possible showers next week.
