A very localised area of damaging winds may develop near the Main Range in southeast Queensland early Sunday morning

Weather Situation: A vigorous westerly airflow is expected to develop over the Main Range during the early hours of Sunday morning in the wake of a trough passage across the region. These winds, combined with the temperature profile of the atmosphere, may produce damaging wind gusts on and east of the Main Range.

Damaging winds, with peak gusts of 90 to 110 km/h, may develop before sunrise on Sunday morning over a very localised area on and east of the Main Range in southeast Queensland. These conditions are most likely on the eastern slopes of the range and the nearby valleys within a few kilometres east of the base of the range.

Conditions are likely to ease from Sunday afternoon.The situation will continue to be monitored and the warning extended if required.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:
* Move your car under cover or away from trees.
* Secure loose outdoor items.
* Seek shelter, preferably indoors and never under trees.
* Beware of fallen trees and powerlines.
* For emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500.
