Southeast Queensland is sweltering through another muggy day, but the weather bureau says the region will be spared the scorcher it had forecast.

The Bureau of Meteorology had predicted a top of 38C in Ipswich and 36C in Brisbane, but forecaster Michael Knepp says the mercury is now expected to fall short of the mid-30s.

"A fair bit of cloud cover has suppressed temperatures, and a lot of moisture near the surface is also suppressing those temperatures," Mr Knepp said.

Brisbane is predicted to reach a little over 31C.

Forecasters say storms are again on the way this afternoon, and expected to intensify into the weekend.

"The chance of thunderstorms in southeast Queensland on Saturday and Sunday is very high," Mr Knepp said.
