Wet weather to continue over weekend

THE wet weather across the North Burnett is set to continue over the weekend.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Dean Narramore said this much rain is not usually seen in the dry season.

"It's normally cold nights and beautiful sunny days," Mr Narramore said.

"Not as much rain as we seen."

Mr Narramore said 14mm was recorded at Gayndah this morning, while 37mm was recorded at Monto.

"We currently have a low-pressure system developing around the Longreach area.... (and a) large mass of cloud and rainfall extending down to the Wide Bay-Burnett region," he said.

"There will be heavy falls around the North Burnett region."

Mr Narramore said the low will start to move north tomorrow (Sunday July 17).

"Though it will still be another wet and cloudy day tomorrow, though not as wet as today" he said.

"We should see the sun return on Monday."
