A slow-moving storm with heavy rain and frequent lightning is moving slowly southwards over Seventeen Seventy,” the Facebook post reads.

"It's likely to cause flash flooding.”

Weatherzone meteorologist Jacob Cronje spoke with the NewsMail this morning about the conditions affecting most of Queensland.

Mr Cronje said the brunt of the weather was looking to stay north of Bundaberg, hitting Gladstone and the down to Agnes Water.

"There is quite a significant weather system affecting Agnes Water,” he said.

"The heavier stuff is inland from Bundaberg.

"It's quite fickle.”

He said there were no flood warnings for the Burnett River.

Afternoon showers will see between 10-20mm of rain come down across Bundy, with 1mm recorded since 7am.
