Heavy rainfall clears for the weekend

FOLLOWING heavy thunderstorms forecasters now predict clear, warm days this weekend and into next week. 

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster David Grant said extensive rainfall had now cleared and moved south of the border into New South Wales. 

"There's a slight to medium chance for drizzle today, but that's pretty much it," he said. 

Mr Grant said the wet weather would continue to clear, predicting clear and sunny skies for Sunday. 

He said temperatures would hover around the low to mid twenties today but would reach 27 degrees by Wednesday. 

In the last 24 hours, Mr Grant reported 30mm of rain fell in Kingaroy, 55mm in Nanango and 43mm in Yarraman. 

"There could have been some flash flooding to the south of Kingaroy, but we haven't had any serious reports," he said.
