Showers could rain on our parade

METEOROLOGISTS have cast a shadow of doubt over today's Anzac Day ceremonies across Bundaberg, saying there is a chance of rain throughout the day.

But Bundaberg RSL sub-branch president Paul Tramacchi said it would take a lot more than a few drops of water to stop people from honouring the Anzacs.

"I might be super optimistic, but I'm confident that it's going to be clear for us," Mr Tramacchi said.

"I'm confident it will be a clearing storm, so to speak."

Mr Tramacchi said rain was very unlikely to put people off the dawn service.

"Nine times out of 10, bad weather doesn't affect the dawn service," he said.

"We'll all just stay and get wet unless it's torrential."

Mr Tramacchi said if the forecasts were correct, the Bundaberg civic service could be moved to the Civic Centre.

"We'll make a call about 3am," he said.

"We'll just have to wait and take it as it comes."

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Michael Knepp said today's weather could possibly mimic yesterday's dreary wet conditions.

"There will still be a bit of cloud around and there might be some more of that very light shower activity," he said.

"The temperatures will be a little bit cooler than normal due to the extra cloud around."

Mr Knepp said today's temperatures were expected to be about two degrees below average for this time of year.

He said while the conditions were expected to clear up later in the week, it would not be for long.

"There is another system coming through," he said.

"Saturday and Sunday could be a bit wet."
