By Kirsty Nancarrow and Kier Shorey, Thursday March 21, 2013 - 11:19 EDT

Ex-tropical Cyclone Tim has crossed the coast near Innisfail in far north Queensland overnight.

Weather bureau spokesman Bill O'Connor says up to 300 millimetres of rain could be dumped across the Cassowary Coast over the next couple of days.

"We will see the rainfall pick up a little bit into this afternoon," he said.

"With those south-easterlies staying in, we will see showers on and off through our area from now and right through the weekend."
