SEQ rains: Expect more showers for rest of the week
KEEP the umbrella handy - there are more showers on the way for much of southeast Queensland.
After an already wet weekend, weather bureau forecaster Gordon Banks said showers were expected to linger in the southeast for the rest of the week.
"What we'll see (Monday) is still a reasonable amount of instability over the southeast corner of the state, with an upper-low moving across," he said.
"That will cause enough instability and there's enough moisture in the air that we will see some showers and inland thunderstorms through (Monday)."
Over the weekend, Upper Springbrook on the Gold Coast experienced the heaviest falls with more than 130mm.
Brighton in Brisbane's northeast received 60mm, while the rain gauge reached 50mm at Holland Park West.
"It was really restricted to the far south of the Sunshine Coast and increased in intensity as you headed further south," Mr Banks said.
"Since 9am (Sunday) morning, the heaviest falls have actually been around the Brisbane area."
Mr Banks said minimum and maximum temperatures this week were forecast to be slightly above average.
"A relatively warm week for June ahead for the southeast corner, but we will see some cooler air probably move in next weekend," he said.
As heavy falls continue to affect northern New South Wales, emergency services rescued two people and their dog after they drove through floodwaters on the north coast on Sunday.
Crews from the Mullumbimby State Emergency Service were called to a causeway at Billinudgel to reports of a car stranded in floodwaters.
All occupants of the vehicle were winched to safety with SES volunteers responding to more than 400 calls for flood assistance since Thursday.
A severe weather warning is currently in place from the mid north coast to north of the Queensland border.
In a statement issued on Sunday night, Seqwater advised several dams were spilling excess water - including Enoggera Dam, Hinze Dam, Wappa Dam and Gold Creek Dam.
There were no plans at that stage to open gates at other dams.
