Dark, heavy clouds near Gladstone not what you think
IF you're wondering what those dark, heavy rain clouds are to Gladstone's south west, you may be disappointed to hear it's not much.
Despite appearing to be heavy rain on the way, the Bureau of Meteorology said the clouds are most likely dark grey because there are multiple layers.
Meteorologist Mark Trenorden said BoM's airport ceilometer, which monitors cloud activity, has been picking up three layers of cloud -- at 2000ft, 3000ft, and 4000ft.
"I suspect it's more low cloud. It's possible there could be a little bit of drizzle," he said.
When asked how much rain Gladstone could expect, Mr Trenorden said: "Very little, there's nothing too much on radar."
