RESIDENTS from Bundaberg to Brisbane should brace for severe storms this week as perfect thunderstorm conditions build, according to

The website reports Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Michael Knep said storms were expected in Bundaberg, Hervey Bay, and surrounding areas late tomorrow and could continue until until Friday.

"At the moment we are going to have really dry air coming in from the west and there will be good conditions for a thunderstorm north east of that trough," he said.

"There is the potential for hail, strong winds, and possibly heavy rainfall."

Mr Knep said the Sunshine Coast could be affected as well as Brisbane if the trough slows, although this is less likely.

"There is less chance it will hit the Sunshine Coast than Wide Bay but a better chance than Brisbane.

"In Brisbane, Tuesday and Wednesday should be nice and on Thursday there might be that possible shower."

Mr Knep said any storms this week should be less severe than storms experienced in the southeast last November.
