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

Weather Situation: A strong cold front will move rapidly east across the region in the early hours of Wednesday morning, followed by a burst of strong westerly winds over the ranges. These winds, combined with the temperature profile of the atmosphere, will induce the threat of a downslope windstorm on the eastern slopes of the Main Range.

Damaging winds, with peak gusts of 90 to 110km/h, may develop before sunrise on Wednesday morning over a very localised area near 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. The threat will persist through until mid-morning on Wednesday.

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.
