“A low-pressure trough coupled with a strengthening upper-level trough and a very moist airstream is responsible for the very heavy rainfall in places,” says Felim Hanniffy, Meteorologist at The Weather Channel.

“Eastern parts of state can expect to see further pulses of very heavy rainfall over the next few days as a slow moving upper-level trough combines with a very moist airstream off the Coral Sea,” concludes Hanniffy.

This also means that parts of the central and south-east Queensland coast may get localised heavier falls of up to 200mm in some places.

Other areas of Queensland experienced localised flash flooding after severe thunderstorms passed through yesterday, receiving up to 173mm in some locations. (More information on these areas is available at The Weather Channel).

The forecast for the South East coast district today is cloudy with patchy rain and scattered showers with possible local thunder.
