Strong winds, large hailstones and flash flooding are expected to hit parts of north and southeast Queensland, although Brisbane will be spared.

A severe thunderstorm warning for two large areas around Townsville and Bundaberg remain in place on Saturday afternoon.

The weather bureau warns damaging winds, heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding, and large hailstones may impact areas including Charters Towers, Bowen, Townsville, Ingham, Pentland and Ayr.

Areas further south including Bundaberg, Hervey Bay, Fraser Island, Hervey Bay, Maryborough and Seventeen Seventy may be hit with strong wind gusts and heavy rain.

Heavy rainfall and some damage from waterspouts has been reported in the Hervey Bay area.

Residents in Brisbane will be spared more severe weather after last week’s supercell storm, which damaged thousands of cars and homes.

The bill is still being calculated but is expected to reach $1 billion, making it one of the most costly storm’s to hit the city in decades.
