Storm outbreak dampening drought concerns for Queensland

A storm outbreak is offering farmers a much-needed reprieve from drought conditions in Central and Southern Queensland.

Queensland recorded its driest August to October season with just 10 millimetres of rain on average across the state.

Those conditions combined with gusty winds fed dozens of early-season bushfires and put a number of crops under threat.

However, wet weather and thunderstorms have drenched the state this November, dampening recent drought concerns for farmers.

More storms are forecasted for the next few days for southern parts of Queensland, with early signs predicting the wet weather could persist until early next week.
