WHO GOT THE RAIN: Wet week for the Burnett

THE last seven days have been a wet one for the region, with towns receiving a welcomed drenching.

Storms and showers were abundant across the sunshine state, with the majority of rainfall occurring over the weekend.

Bureau of Meteorology duty forecaster Peter Markworth said most towns in the North Burnett received some downpours, particularly on Saturday, January 18.

"Gayndah airport received 19mm over seven days, with 14mm being on the 18th," Mr Markworth said.

"Mt Gayndah on the other hand saw 52mm, with 47mm of those also on the 18th."

Two locations in Mt Perry saw 22mm and 7mm, while Mundubbera recorded 62mm over the past week.

"Monto then saw 52mm, with 50mm falling on Saturday," he said.

"Biggenden had 41mm over a few days, while Eidsvold received 39mm in the past week."

This inundation of wet weather is not over yet, as Mr Markworth says the North Burnett could expect more showers and storms to come our way.

"It does appear that this will occur until the end of the week, as the focus is in northern Queensland," he said.

"We're seeing a lot of rainfall from the tropical north particularly around the Gulf."

This should be streaming over most of Queensland according to Mr Markworth, as the state is receiving a lot of moisture from the coast towards the trough, which is moving further and further inland.

"So hopefully most of the locations will get something this week."
