How much rain did Ipswich get last night?

RESIDENTS received between nothing and 50mm of rain last night despite some areas of Brisbane flooding.

The Bureau of Meteorology is expecting a 60 per cent change of rain today with a top of 37C.

Duty forecaster Livio Regano said Amberley had 32mm and the main Amberley aerodrome gauge had 16mm.

"It was a very narrow line of storms but it was very thin and it took a northeasterly track across the city of Brisbane and out into Moreton Bay," Mr Regano said.

"So that wasn't too bad a fall but nothing like Brisbane city which got more than 130mm in the same amount of time."

"What might be of interest is though a very strong wind gust got recorded at Amberley with the storm at some time between 10-11pm which was 77km/h."

Mr Regano also said that tonight and tomorrow were predicted as the most likely for storms.

"Last night's storms took most of us by surprise - storms were forecast but not that kind of magnitude," he said.

"The situation this afternoon and this evening and tomorrow afternoon and evening is there is a good chance of thunderstorms forming on the hot land out west getting carried to a coastal level.

"There's a potential for those storms to be severe, damaging wind gusts, large hail."

There are no warnings in place at this stage, however, Mr Regano said.

The forecast expects a storm similar to last nights with the chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon and evening, possibly severe.

Light winds will become northeasterly 20-25km/h in the early afternoon and then drop off in the evening.

Friday there is a 70 per cent chance of rain with similar conditions, with rain most likely in the morning and afternoon, however the mercury will only hit 32C.
