THUNDER and darkened skies have triggered hope that we may see some rain around Beaudesert this afternoon.
Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Kimba Wong says a couple of storms have popped up this afternoon.
"There's a pretty big storm over Boonah, heading towards Beaudesert," she said.
"But it's a dry atmosphere and there is unlikely to be more than a few millimetres in it.
"There could be wind gusts, lightning, thunder and possibly even large hail."
