AUTHORITIES are bracing for more rain to hit Toowoomba and the Lockyer Valley this afternoon.

The Bureau of Meteorology has not issued a weather warning, but police and emergency services are keeping a close watch on approaching storms.

Some concern has been raised about what impact more rain would have on the community of Laidley.

Last night, some households in the flood-hit community were urged to evacuate.

Queensland Police has warned Toowoomba residents of the approaching rain, urging them to remain vigilant.

Motorists are advised to not travel across flooded roadways and bridges and remember "If it's flooded, forget it".

Motorists are also being asked to slow down and drive to the conditions which may mean driving under the speed limit.
