When the South Burnett can expect rain this week

SOUTH Burnett residents can expect rain, sunshine and frost in what a Weatherzone meteorologist has called a mixed week.

Meteorologist Craig McIntosh said there should be some wet weather from tomorrow.

Today will be cloudy with a slightly warmer-than-average maximum temperature of 25 degrees.

The South Burnett may receive a spot of rain on Tuesday, but Kingaroy will receive less than 2mm.

The heavier rain will most likely fall to the south of Kingaroy in towns like Blackbutt.

Thunderstorms will potentially form on Wednesday.

"It could be a bit more showery as a trough starts deepening over Southeast Queensland, with the heavier falls to the south of Kingaroy,” Mr McIntosh said.

The meteorologist said it would the region only had a pretty low chance of receiving thunderstorms and showers would be quite isolated over the South Burnett area.

Blackbutt on the other hand, could be in for between 5-10mm.

Thursday is believed to be another damp day, offering anywhere between 1-5mm of rain across the South Burnett.

Eastern parts of the region towards Gympie could get up to 10mm.

By Friday, the rain is forecast to dry up and South Burnett residents can expect some frosty mornings.

"Due to the lingering moisture from the wet couple of days and cooler temperatures, frost becomes a factor on Friday and Saturday,” Mr McIntosh said.

The frost should be gone by Sunday morning, which will warm up to a maximum of 26 degrees.
