A heavy rain warning has been issued by the Brisbane Met Office for much of eastern Australia this week. It’s not a threatening warning, but the weather in the region is cooler than usual and storms could bring heavy rain to the area. Those who are planning to visit the region should be prepared for the worst case scenario and plan for a short holiday.

Heavy rain is expected in western Queensland on Tuesday and Wednesday, courtesy of thunderstorms and slow-moving storm cells. In the morning, the Kings Langley area will receive up to 26mm of rain, while the rest of western Queensland will experience showers and thunderstorms throughout the day. The wet weather is expected to continue into the central west of Queensland and will cause flooding and other issues.

The wetter season in Brisbane typically lasts for 7.2 months. The month with the highest number of wet days is February, with an average of 10.0 days with at least 0.04 inches of precipitation. In contrast, the drier season lasts for 4.8 months, from May 29 to October 21.

Brisbane enjoys a subtropical climate with mild winters and hot summers. The city’s location at 27 degrees south means that it is sheltered from the desert heat in winter and is protected from cold winds in the summer. However, it does sometimes experience heavy rains, especially during La Nina years.

The average hourly wind speed in Brisbane varies slightly throughout the year. In the windiest part of the year, which lasts from October 13 to March 31, the average hourly wind speed is 9.3 miles per hour. The calmest month is May, with an average wind speed of 8.6 miles per hour.

The warmest time of year in Brisbane is December 20 to April 1, when the temperatures average above 77degF. The coldest month is July, when the average low is 49degF, and the average high is 68degF. On the other hand, the coolest time of year in Brisbane is June 24 to October 3. The average temperature in January is 68 degrees.
