Warning cancelled, but storm arrives

THE severe weather warning for the Whitsunday and Central Coast region has been cancelled.

Shortly before 4pm, the Bureau of Meteorology scrapped the warning, which was issued this morning for heavy, slow-moving storms between Proserpine and Koumala.

Despite the cancellation, a storm has tracked south from Bowen, causing rainfall and thunder over Airlie Beach, and lightning and thunder in Proserpine.
