Don't expect too much northern rain will head this way

ANY farmer chasing rain in the Warwick and Stanthorpe areas within the next week better think again - the odds are the next week will be more of the same.

Gordon Banks from the Bureau of Meteorology in Brisbane said while there could be some isolated showers and storms in the south west on Sunday, he wasn't expecting anything in the south east.

"There is no rain for the Warwick and Stanthorpe areas as far as we can see within the next week,” he said.

"There could be isolated showers nearer the coast.”

He said there was little chance the Southern Downs would be impacted by current rain activity in the north.

Temperatures have been close to average in recent days and not well above normal which is the case further west.

On Monday, there will be more cloud on the Southern Downs which will mean a dip in temperatures.

The expected maximum temperatures over the next four days in Warwick are 33 degrees today, 29 Monday, 31 Tuesday and 33 degrees on Wednesday.

Stanthorpe is tipped to have maximums of 31, 26, 29 and 30 degrees over the same four days.
