Brace for heavy rain
ROCKHAMPTON region residents should brace for some heavy rain this week with the Bureau of Meteorology forecasting heavy downpours that could bring more than 100mm in a day.
The bureau said the Capricornia region could see heavy falls starting tomorrow and expected to last through to Friday before, hopefully, easing to showers by Saturday.
The bureau said the region could expect 50mm to 100mm daily in some areas as the monsoonal activity in the northern part of the State moves further south.
A severe weather warning for the region is expected to be issued in the coming days to warn residents of the moderate to heavy falls.
The weekend left some areas drenched, with Yeppoon receiving 57mm in the 24-hour period to 9am yesterday.
Meanwhile, a severe weather warning was issued last night for much of the State's north with heavy rainfalls expected to fall as far south as Mackay.
