The odd shower of rain

JONTY Hall is confident the Southern Downs will be one of the quieter parts of the state, weather wise, for the first half of this week.

The Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster said winds would be predominately moderate south-easterly with an odd shower, particularly during the afternoons, throughout the Eastern Downs.

"With the south-east winds, temperatures will be relatively mild," he said.

There will be an overnight minimum in the low to mid teens with maximums generally in the early 20s, creeping up a little by Wednesday or Thursday to reach 26 to 27 degrees.

"There won't be too much rain to the middle of the week," Mr Hall said.

"It is possible we may see some heavier rain between late Thursday and Saturday morning.

"The weather on the Southern Downs could be influenced by the monsoon low which is up north at the moment. The rain could be heavy for a short period."

Cherrabah recorded 16mm rain from a fall on Saturday afternoon and Warwick 1.6mm.

The rain did not stop Anthony Cerqui from enjoying the junior tennis tournament in Warwick.

"We played through the rain," he said.
