How much rain we got and what we can expect next

IT WAS a rainy night last night, the first in a long time. But what can we expect next?

Despite some heavy noise on roofs, spokesman for the Bureau of Meteorology said the region saw just 6.4mm of rain overnight. 

It was areas such as Gympie, Double Island Point and Maryborough who had falls of more than 20mm. 

But the good news is there could be more rain on the way today, despite Bundaberg being "right on the edge of the most significant activity".

Showers and storms are a definite possibility this afternoon as wet conditions intensify. 

Locals in different parts of the region said they saw more than the amount recorded by Bundaberg in their rain gauges.

Justin Rae said there was 14mm at Welcome Creek and Renate Katt said there had been 31mm recorded at South Isis.

Today
Chance of rain - 60 per cent. Partly cloudy. Max 34

Tomorrow
Chance of rain - 20 per cent. Partly cloudy.
Min 22 Max 30
