Winter rain on the way ... and maybe storms

LIGHT rain is sweeping across the Darling Downs towards the south-east with the possibility of afternoon storms.

It is currently raining Toowoomba.

There have been reports of rain in Pittsworth, Dalby and Millmerran.

It could offer some welcome relief to Darling Downs farmers who need decent rain if they are to plant winter crops.

The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms across the Darling Downs and Granite Belt today.
