Weather outlook is uncertain, but there will be rain

THE weather bureau is tipping a break in the weather, but given the changeable conditions forecasters don't want to stick their necks out too far.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster John Gardner said yesterday there would be showers Wednesday and Thursday.

Mr Gardner said there would be showers, rain and a possible storm on Friday and on Saturday there should be showers early then later in the day possible rain and showers on Sunday.

"Friday into Saturday there could be some moderate to heavy falls," he said.

"That's our best guess at the moment; things can change.

"Given the way the modelling has been behaving lately, they have been changing very frequently; things haven't settled down, they have been chopping and changing from day to day."

About 60 roads were closed across the Ipswich district Tuesday night.

Council will need to inspect them Wednesday morning before they are reopened.

 

Roads still closed at 3pm Wednesday

 

This is a list of current road closures.  Ipswich City Council advises that major bridges may have no water or debris over the bridge deck but still be closed to traffic.  The bridge cannot be opened until inspected and approved to open by a qualified engineer.
