Thunderstorms have struck parts of southeast Queensland after the state experienced smoldering temperatures.
The storm cells tracked through parts of Ipswich and Logan, generating heavy showers and severe winds.
Short but intense torrential rainfall was received at Springfield Lakes situated in Ipswich.
Most residents in the area are busy repairing their properties after hailstones accompanying Saturday’s supercell storm drilled holes in their roofs.
Peak temperatures in Queensland ranged between 5-8 degrees Celsius above the average, as Ipswich hit 35 degrees Celsius with Mt Isa peaking at 40 degrees Celsius.
The blistering weather conditions alongside gusty winds are set to produce dangerous fire conditions. A Watch and Act Alert remains in place for Mareeba in Queensland’s far north owing to the huge bushfire that continues to burn near the area.
Residents have been urged to have their bushfire survival plans handy and prepare to strictly follow them.
The present warm temperatures are expected to persist in several parts in North Queensland though conditions are set to ease in the state’s southeast parts in the next couple of day.
“Temps by Sunday could be anywhere up to 11 degrees cooler than what we’re seeing today,” Senior Forecaster Felin Hanniffy said.
“It could be 2-4C below average for November as we a southerly.”
