A band of heavy rain has delivered widespread totals of 50 to 80mm from Moranbah to Bundaberg in Queensland, but this rain will clear the state later today.
The slow-moving band of rain has delivered large totals to many areas across the state during the past week. For most this has been the heaviest rain in months and for some it has been the biggest July rainfall in years.
St. Lawrence gained 53mm of rain in the 24 hours to 9am this morning, which is its heaviest in four months. Gladstone also received its heaviest rain since March with a total of 69mm during the past 24 hours. For Gladstone, this was the largest July total in at least 18 years.
A high pressure ridge is building over the nation's interior today, which will force this low pressure trough offshore late in the day. Eastern districts from the Herbert and Lower Burdekin to the Wide Bay and Burnett will gain an additional 10 to 20mm, before the rain clears tonight.
On Monday, sunny skies will prevail under the high pressure system, however onshore winds will trigger isolated showers along the coast from Tuesday.
