The SE Queensland and Moreton Bay areas including Bribie Island and surrounding areas may get some explosive showers and thunderstorms developing this afternoon and evening, with the possibility of some decent rain as well.
Bribie Island is in the grip of dry and hot weather, while some areas of SE Queensland have experienced the driest November in history with some parts only recording just over 1mm of rainfall.

These conditions have also been experienced in NSW and as a result, the hot, dry conditions have lead to hundreds of bush fires resulting in 6 human deaths.
This is due to abnormally dry winds bringing in no moisture from all directions. This is extremely rare for this time of year, as usually in November we see consistent storms developing over Queensland.
These conditions are set to continue for at least another 2 weeks and we may see more significant rainfall late December or early next year.
Some thunderstorms may be severe as they interact with the coastal sea breeze and may contain heavy rain, hail, and strong winds.
Severe thunderstorm warning
