MINOR FLOODING LIKELY, WITH SOME ISOLATED MODERATE FLOODING POSSIBLE ACROSS THE FLOOD WATCH AREA

A trough extends through central Queensland and the southern interior, weakening on Monday. A second trough sits near the southeast coast, this trough will deepen on Monday in response to an approaching upper trough, with the trough system moving away on Wednesday.

Parts of the region remain wet following recent rainfall with flooding continuing in some areas.

Areas of heavy rainfall with thunderstorms will occur over inland parts of the flood watch area on Sunday. On Monday and Tuesday heavy rainfall will shift to coastal areas, but will remain highly dependent on the movement of the coastal trough. Heavy rainfall will ease on Wednesday.

River level rises are expected, with areas of minor to moderate flooding possible across the Flood Watch area from later on Sunday, with rises in South East Queensland from Monday.

Localised flooding is possible associated with isolated showers and thunderstorms across the Flood Watch area.
