Calm before storm: Possible showers moving through

Up to 50mm of rain soaked parts of the Coast on Saturday as more wet weather is predicted for the region.

Weather bureau forecaster Michael Gray said the same systems that hit the Coast on Saturday were still affecting the area.

While the brunt of the storm is expected to slam the Central Highlands area, Mr Gray said it was moving towards the southeast.

"There's still a chance there that we'll get some further showers and thunderstorms on the Coast today," he said.

 

"There's a chance of storms broadly through southeast Queensland."

Mr Gray said 20-25mm of rainfall "might be something to expect" on Sunday on the Coast, with the possibility of higher totals if a storm passed through.

"We've got a fair bit of cloud cover," he said.

Maroochydore recorded the highest rainfall totals on Saturday, with the south of the region also reporting anywhere from 25-50mm.

Mr Gray said the bureau's station on Eudlo Flats Rd received 32mm of rain.

Temperatures will remain in the high to mid 20s across the Coast on Sunday, with a chance of showers and thunderstorms predicted for the next few days.
