For people in parts of Central Highlands and Coalfields and Darling Downs and Granite Belt Forecast Districts.

Issued at 8:14 pm Saturday, 19 February 2022.

Slow moving thunderstorm clusters are likely to produce heavy rainfall.

Weather Situation: A near stationary trough lies over the centre of the state into the southeast inland. Increasing northeasterly low level flow will feed moisture into the trough and sustain slow moving thunderstorm clusters capable of producing very heavy rainfall over the next few hours.

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 Taroom, Rolleston, Springsure, Mantuan Downs and Carnarvon National Park.

Upper Dogwood Creek recorded 71 mm in the past 2 hours.

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.
