City drenched ahead of cold snap
THE cloudy, cold and rainy weather that has dampened Ipswich for much of this week will continue today.
Ipswich residents, including Fatma Adnan and her two daughters, Shanefa, 8, and Sharia, 3, who visited Ipswich Art Gallery, braved the wet weather.
The rain fell all day yesterday, with Springfield Lakes recording 19mm of rainfall for the past 24 hours, Brassall 18mm and Churchill 22mm.
The Bureau of Meteorology predicted showers would continue today and were expected to clear tomorrow morning.
Senior forecaster Michelle Berry said once the rain cleared Ipswich could expect some chilly temperatures next week.
"The Ipswich area could get down close to zero. Some frosts are expected."
Yesterday areas of Brisbane received 35mm of rain and Kingaroy up to 50mm.
