Super Cell To Bring Large Hail To South East QLD Today

Brisbane has woken to an absolutely cracking Thursday, but we're being warned not to get too comfy with the blue skies and sunshine.. 

Fierce cells have started building off the coast of the entire eastern seaboard, and we're being told there is an almost certainty we'll see severe storm action from this afternoon. 

Sean Fitzgerald from the Bureau of Meteorology says very large hail is the biggest risk for South East Queensland. 

"5 centimetre hail is very possible", he said. 

"There is definitely possible strong winds with any kind of super cell storm so keep an eye out for the strong winds, as well. In terms of rainfall, you might get a few millimetres, however I would say that hail is the biggest risk today."

In terms of movement, Fitzgerald says today's cells are likely to take the classic route, moving in from the west. 

"Severe storm means a possible super cell which means it could be an organised storm. It's almost straight west to east today and the more likely areas for hail would be Ipswich, Brisbane and South."

The advice is to prepare now and keep a close eye on the radars and any severe weather warnings issued by the bureau.
