Where the rain fell in the South Burnett

THE South Burnett has received consistent rainfall since a storm hit on both Monday and Tuesday nights.

Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist James Thompson said the weather was expected.

"We've had a pretty strong upper trough in the upper atmosphere which enhances rainfall,” he said.

"We've also had a moist airmass near the surface, which creates rain and storms and the upper trough enhances those.”

Mr Thompson said the best falls were on Tuesday afternoon and evening.

"Around the Kingaroy region they got 22mm,” he said.

"Glenmore got 34mm and Proston got 33mm.

"It was a widespread rainfall of about 20-40mm through the region.

"We expected widespread 20mm falls, but there were some heavier isolated falls.”

Mr Thompson predicted the rain would continue into next week.

"On Friday it will lighten up a bit,” he said.

"There is a good chance of rainfall but the totals will be less and more isolated.

"On the weekend, we are likely to see the rainfall totals increase.”

According to the BOM rainfall conditions, Boondooma received 69mm of rain on Tuesday and Nanango received 61mm of rain.

The West Barambah gauge, near Murgon, received 14mm.
