For people in parts of Central Highlands and Coalfields, Capricornia, Wide Bay and Burnett, Maranoa and Warrego and Darling Downs and Granite Belt Forecast Districts.

Issued at 3:06 pm Thursday, 12 May 2022.

Heavy rainfall is possible with thunderstorms over the interior of the state.

An upper trough is combining with a moist airmass east of a surface trough to produce extensive areas of rainfall with embedded thunderstorms in the Queensland interior today. Persistent rainfall is expected to continue into the evening, with isolated embedded thunderstorms likely to produce heavy rainfall within the warning area.

Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding in the warning area over the next several hours. Locations which may be affected include Roma, Emerald, St George, Blackwater, Springsure and Carnarvon National Park.

Old Cashmere (northwest of St. George) recorded 105mm in the 6 hours to 2:30pm

St George recorded 94.8mm in the 6 hours to 2:30pm.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:
* Never drive, walk or ride through flood waters. If it's flooded, forget it.
* Seek shelter, preferably indoors and never under trees.
* Avoid using the telephone during a thunderstorm.
* Beware of fallen trees and powerlines.
* For emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500.
