Warwick warned to brace for rain
WARWICK'S record dry spell is set to be washed away by heavy rain from today, which may cause flooding across some southern regions.
The Weather Channel chief meteorologist Dick Whitaker said while he couldn't say exactly which areas were in the warning zones, he recommended all people to keep an eye on flood warnings these next few days.
"The type of rain we're talking about, we could get (flash flooding) so people need to be aware of it," he said.
"It's a substantial bit of rain, no doubt about it - so people will have to dust off their umbrellas and get them out."
Rain and thunderstorms will shift in today, bringing between 5-10mm of rain, and the wet weather is expected to hang around for the rest of the week.
Tomorrow will see the heaviest rain, with between 15-25mm forecast, along with more thunderstorms.
The rain will lower temperatures, which will reach as low as 24 degrees Friday and bring minimum overnight temperatures of 19 degrees.
Warwick residents Zeb Seberry and Heidi Adams said they would spend wet days inside watching movies and eating popcorn.
