More rain could be on way for Bundy

POWER lines were downed, electricity was lost and traffic lights stopped working as storms lashed the region yesterday.

Reports came in of hail in Branyan and South Kolan, and Bundaberg Airport recorded 46.6mm of rain between 1 and 2pm.

But the grey skies may not be quite gone yet.

Weatherzone meteorologist Craig McIntosh said storms were likely to continue today.

"The storm activity is due to a slow-moving trough over Queensland," he said.

"There is a good chance of storms on Monday with some rain on Tuesday before things start to dry up."

Mr McIntosh said it was the season for unpredictable weather.

"This time of year, storms can just pop up whenever they like. It is very hard to predict."
