Never mind the raindrops, New Year's will be fine

Date

New Year's Eve revellers shouldn't be concerned about the odd raindrop or two falling around Brisbane this morning, forecasters say there's no need to bring an umbrella tonight.

Despite light showers across the south east today, the forecast for tonight's celebrations are for a cloudy, but fine evening.

John Gardner from the Bureau of Meteorology said there was a band of light showers stretching from Beenleigh north to Caboolture this morning but skies are expected to clear this afternoon.

“It's probably going to be basically fine this evening, but reasonably cloudy, and quite pleasant in terms of temperature, in the high 20s,” he said.

He said there was little need to take an umbrella out party-going this evening.

“I really think that would be overdoing it.”

Mr Gardner said light to moderate east to south-easterly winds would be felt, but they shouldn't affect South Bank's mammoth fireworks spectacular.

“There's probably still a bit of wind around, although not as bad as it has been overnight.”

The meteorologist said New Year's Day was looking cloudy but fine, with showers possible for the Sunshine Coast.
