Skies open up for the Granite Belt

GRANITE BELT resident's prayers have been answered as grey clouds hovered over the skies before pelting down rain yesterday afternoon and overnight. 

Stanthorpe received a total of 20mm of rain in the past 24 hours, however residents of Amiens and Accommodation Creek welcomed in the highest totals of 28mm. 

BoM Meteorologist Lachlan Stoney said there is a chance the region will see more showers and thunderstorms this afternoon, however they are likely to be patchy. 

Looking forward, from Monday Stanthorpe will return to the morning frosts and sunny days throughout the week. 


Mr Stoney said a trough moving through the region could possibly bring more showers on Friday, however they will likely be weak and not as significant as this weekend.
