The southeast is once again in the firing line for severe thunderstorms amid the hot and humid conditions.

The Bureau is warning large hail, damaging winds and heavy rainfall is possible for the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Brisbane.

Residents in the Scenic Rim are warned these storms have the potential to be “very dangerous” including giant hail.

The storms bypassed the Gold Coast on Wednesday but hammered down on other parts of the southeast with the destructive supercell wreaking havoc.

A home in Winya, north-west of Brisbane, was significantly damaged after being struck by lightning and two women were injured.

The storm also caused a bushfire at Mt Kilcoy in the same region.

Temperatures are also soaring across the region, with parts of the Gold Coast hitting 31 degrees today, while it’ll get to 32 in Brisbane, 35 in Ipswich and 34 in Beaudesert.


Humidity this morning has hit up to 95% on the Gold Coast.
