Another severe storm could hit southeast Queensland, while other parts of the state deal with severe fire dangers.

The Bureau of Meteorology has forecast storms to hit Brisbane and the Gold Coast on Thursday afternoon, with the weather system extending to the Wide Bay and Burnett regions on Friday.

A storm on Wednesday evening in southern Queensland delivered hail at Warwick and Applethorpe on the Darling Downs before delivering an hour-long drenching to Brisbane.

BOM senior forecaster Michael Knepp told ABC radio that Brisbane had received the same amount of rain on Wednesday as the city had in the previous six months.

East Brisbane recorded 135mm, and Brisbane city 100mm.

However not all of southern Queensland benefited from the shower.

The cities of Redland and Logan, who were drought-declared by the state government earlier in the week, received just over 3mm.

Other regions in the state have severe fire dangers warnings for Thursday and Friday.

Parts of the Darling Downs, Granite Belt, Warrego and Maranoa are at risk.

Wide Bay and the Burnett will also endure severe fire danger conditions on Friday, coupled with potential storms.
