FORECAST: Will CQ experience another day of wild weather?

DESPITE a sunny start to Wednesday morning, parts of Central Queensland could once again experience more wild weather later today.

The forecast comes amid six days of wet weather to hit the region – with more than 7500 people left without power yesterday.

According to BOM, Rockhampton region is expected to cop a high chance of showers despite its rain radar for now appearing clear.

Between at least 6 to 20mm of rainfall could later dampen the area.

Severe thunderstorms left around 7500 people without power across Rockhampton on Tuesday.

A thunderstorm – possibly severe – and light winds are also likely to impact parts of the region.

However, Wednesday could very well be the last day Capricornia experiences such significant wet weather for the week.

There are currently no weather warnings in place either Central Queensland or the Central Highlands.
