More heavy rain expected for the Burnett

MORE than 60mm of rain was recorded in Mundubbera overnight as the trough continues to deliver rain to the Wide Bay Burnett.

Across the region Gayndah recorded 30mm, Biggenden 10mm, Eidsvold 13mm, Mt Walsh 3mm, Monto 13mm, Abercorn 17mm, Mingo Crossing 3mm, Mt Perry 4mm and Paradise Dam 19mm.

Bureau of Metereology meteorologist Andrew Buffalino said the wet weather will ramp up leading to Monday where more rain is expected to fall.

"The weather is very hit and miss,” Mr Buffalino said.

"We're still expecting showers and storms across the region (Sunday) and Monday, more so the eastern parts of the Wide Bay.”

Mr Buffalino said today will be "one of those less active days.”

"Tomorrow things will begin to heat up across the Burnett, towards the east of Gayndah people should expect the heaviest falls to develop,” he said.

"From Bundaberg to Caboolture widespread falls from 40-80mm is expected and around Gayndah it's expected to be from 30-50mm.”
