Slow moving showers and thunderstorms a potential heavy rain threat to Gold Coast Hinterland.

Weather Situation: A moist tropical derived airmass is situated over Southeast Queensland associated with a low pressure trough to its south in New South Wales. This trough is helping to continue to feed in this moisture making any slow moving shower or thunderstorm in the area a heavy rain threat.

The Bureau of Meteorology warns that, at 3:20 pm, severe thunderstorms were detected on the weather radar near Numinbah Valley and Mount Tamborine. These thunderstorms are moving towards the south to southeast. They are forecast to affect Springbrook by 3:50 pm.

Heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding is likely.

Heavy rainfall increases the potential for landslides and debris across roads.

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.
