TOOWOOMBA'S water tanks could be in for a further top up as Christmas Day rain continues on towards the New Year.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Michelle Berry said the majority of last night's widespread rain fell on the Southern Downs but Toowoomba and the rest of the Downs did not miss out.

An impressive 108mm fell at Elbow Valley, south west of Killarney, in the 24-hour period before 9am today.

A particularly heavy 70mm fell in the space of an hour as part of the State-topping total.

Reports of 25 to 35mm were received in the Toowoomba area while some rain gauges in Dalby reached 53mm.

Miss Berry said showers and storms were predicted over the Darling Downs this afternoon.

"There is some potential for severe storms at Inglewood and Goondiwindi," Miss Berry said.

"We will be watching them very carefully."

Tomorrow's weather conditions are expected to ease a little, with morning drizzle and showers predicted for Toowoomba and the Darling Downs.
