Bundy recieves 53mm in two days

SEVERE weather warnings were in force for Bundaberg last night, with strong winds and heavy rains expected to lash the region overnight.

A flood warning was issued for coastal waters and inland streams south of Bundaberg, and boaties and residents were warned to secure any loose items with winds of up to 33 knots predicted.

And after a near-record wet spell in February, Bundaberg looks set to repeat its watery fate with half its average rainfall for March — while only two days into the month.

Nearly 53mm fell at Bundaberg Airport yesterday, dropping more than half the region’s March average of 104.6mm.

The downpours are due in part to a monsoonal low off Fraser Island, which caused heavy downpours and cooler temperatures across the Wide Bay region.

Forecaster David Grant said the wettest part of the week would end this morning.

“It will ease into showers, ” Mr Grant said.
