THE South Burnett has received upwards of 100mm from Friday to Sunday, and more is on the way.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Andrew Bufalino said the South Burnett could expect moderate falls this week, as the coast gets drenched by rain and expects flooding.

"Today (Monday) is a lot less active then we have been seeing in the last couple of days,” he said.

"We are still expecting wet conditions across the region, and could see a total of up to 15-20mm today.

"By the end of tomorrow, there will be more of a focus on the east coast, a little more activity across the region.

"The closer to the coast, the heavier the falls.”

Mr Bufalino said there would be showers and unstable conditions around the South Burnett until Friday.

"Then things start to settle down with more spring like weather and more showers and thunderstorms expected on the weekend and temperatures back up to normal,” he said.

The system is moving in a South West direction but Mr Bufalino said there is more of a potential for extreme weather on the coast but Kingaroy should be in the clear for any flash flooding.

According to the BOM parts of the South Burnett could experience up to 50-100mm of rain in the next four days.
