Blue skies for Roma's weekend: Bureau

IT MIGHT have been gloomy this week, but the Maranoa is set for some clear skies on the weekend, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

BOM Queensland duty forecaster Sean Fitzgerald said Roma and the surrounding areas have received "decent” rainfall in the period from 9am-1.30pm today.

"Since 9am (yesterday) Roma has received 1.6mm of rain and Mitchell received 1.5mm,” he said.

"That's pretty consistent through the surrounding areas.

"It's just a mild trough coming through and it will clear up by Friday.”

Mr Fitzgerald said the rain was subject to a light cool change but the weather should warm up by mid-week.

"There's a chance of light frost (Friday) morning but then it should be sunny for the rest of the day and the weekend,” he said.

"There will be a chance of warmer nights coming up in the middle of next week.”

The predictions of clear and sunny weather will be a welcome change with a number of local sporting clubs hosting finals matches on both days of the weekend.
