We've been warned of a high probability of severe storms across south east Queensland tomorrow (Saturday) and maybe Sunday. Heavy rain, strong winds, maybe large hail....

Queensland Forecast
A medium to high chance of showers and gusty thunderstorms extending from the northwest of the state into central districts and into the southeast of the state. Showers and storms should also extend into the tropical interior and ranges. Some severe storms are likely over the southeast corner of the state south of about St Lawrence. Fine and mostly sunny in the southwest of the state.

Well, that is the first time I've had a tornado warning. Luckily for me it stayed south of here. Scary stuff. Large hail and knifing rain are bad enough.

They are pretty rare in Australia, though I have to say they seem to be getting more common

Sorry, was too busy at work to do anywhere else - I can copy and post the Queensland ones straight from our own emails, but other states take more time
