WEATHER: Sudden Southwest rainfall cuts footpath

Southwest Queensland was greeted with an early Monday morning downpour of rain as Cyclone Kimi moves along down south.

The Bureau of Meteorology recorded 21.4mm of rain for Roma as of 9am Monday, January 18.

A further 4.2mm has been recorded for the town since, as of 10.30am.

This splashing left many puddles on local roads, with a gully blocking off the footpath on Lovell Street.

BOM forecasted that Roma had an 80 per cent chance of showers and a possible storm on Monday, with a maximum temperature of 29C.

There is a 40 per cent chance of up to 1mm of rain on Tuesday, but Roma will experience mostly sunny days for the rest of the week.

Unfortunately, Charleville hasn’t recorded any rainfall so far, according to BOM.

But the forecast for the town will be a 70 per cent chance of rain, with a shower or two expected and possible storm.
