Rain predicted for race day

THE Bureau of Meteorology predicts 10-15mm of rainfall for the Stanthorpe Cup day tomorrow.

Meteorologist Rick Threlfall said it was going to be a cloudy day in Stanthorpe with a fair bit of rain.

"A band of cloud will be moving in from the west over night and in the morning,” he said.

"It is going to be a cloudy day with rain in the morning.”

Mr Threlfall said with a 90 per cent chance, Stanthorpe would experience 10-15mm of rainfall.

"It might even get up to 20mm,” he said.

"But it shouldn't be particularly heavy.

"It will only improve mid- to late afternoon.”

Mr Threlfall said Saturday would be a cool day for this time of the year as well with maximum temperatures about 18 degrees - so pack some appropriate clothing when heading out to Armstrong Park. We will still have a 'bumper day'!
