A cool and soggy Saturday in Brisbane

Graeme Brittain, Saturday October 12, 2019 - 10:07 AEDT


A deep trough has brought some significant rainfall across the Brisbane area over the last 24 hours, with more to come through the remainder of today.


 


In the 24 hours to 9am Saturday, the Manly, Hemmant and Ransome rain gauges in the city's east collected the highest totals, with 69mm, 66mm and 62mm, respectively. Brisbane city's copped 29mm over the same period.


 


Over 1000 flashes of lightning were also recorded since Friday afternoon across the Brisbane metropolitan area, mostly in the northwest.


 


Today will see the temperature peaking around seven degrees below the long term average for mid-October, as thick cloud, frequent showers and a few thunderstorms continue to affect the region. A further 10-40mm is possible before the end of Saturday.


 


Showers are expected to clear by the late-evening, which will set the scene for Sunday, with warmer temperatures and much clearer skies.
