Wild weather misses us

THE Bundaberg region dodged the severe weather the Bureau of Meteorology had warned us to expect yesterday.

The bureau had issued a severe weather warning for coastal areas, predicting the possibility of heavy rain that could lead to flash flooding and damaging winds.

But it was the Sunshine Coast that copped the brunt of it yesterday.

"It just slipped a bit further south and you missed the worst of it," meteorologist Rick Threlfall said.

Mr Threlfall said a trough off the coast, which had been expected to cause the bad weather, stayed offshore.

"The trough didn't come on to the coast so the weather wasn't too bad," he said.

"(Over) the next two days there will still be one or two showers about. On Friday there may be a shower and possible thunderstorm."

Mr Threlfall said there might still be showers on the horizon for the coming weekend.
