WEATHER: Patchy rain to continue into the weekend

THE Burnett can expect a wet and humid few days ahead following last night's showers.

Thanks to the rain, the predicted maximum temperature for today is a cooler 23 degrees. That's seven degrees cooler than yesterday's high of 30 degrees.

A WeatherZone meteorologist said last night's storm was patchy across the region.

"Some areas in your region had quite a lot of rain, then many had less a millimetre,” they said.

"Most of this rainfall was between 9pm and 11pm.”

The rainfall was heaviest in Gayndah last night.

Mount Gayndah had 41mm of rain, while the Gayndah Airport recorded 23mm.

Ban Ban Springs received 17mm.

But the WeatherZone meteorologist said Kingaroy, Nanango, Murgon, Yarraman, and Blackbutt all had less than a millimetre of rain last night.

"Kingaroy and surrounding towns in the South Burnett should expect more showers later today (Wednesday) and Thursday,” they said.

"It's all pretty unsettled though, because of the low-pressure trough sitting over parts of Queensland, along with the remaining remnants of Cyclone Trevor.

"So again it will be patchy and widespread. Some places will get a lot of rain, and some very close by will miss out.”

Today and tonight (Wednesday), areas can expect between 15 and 20mm of rainfall.

On Thursday the high temperature will rise to 24 degrees, and 1-5mm rain is predicted.

The WeatherZone meteorologist warned Friday and Saturday could bring some storms to the area.

"It could be really heavy, but shouldn't be too severe,” they said.

"We're looking at 5-10mm or more over those two days.

"Then Sunday will be dry and sunny. The temperature will rise to around 28 degrees, but it will be a dry heat which should be a nice break from the humidity that will hang around until then.”
