They have also put out alerts for Somerset and Wivenhoe. Nature is still deciding if/or and where this rain event happens

, there is a growing upper level trough out west, a NE moist feed and late yesterday a possibility of an east coast low developing near SEQ. IF and where these things meet up will decide who gets the rain event and how much, this morning guesses were anywhere from just north of Bundy to past the border.

Hope it`s south of the border, I`m toying with the idea of a couple of days camping/fishing at Coochin creek, don't need the freshwater

BoM and other agencies have issued flood watch/alerts


Issued at 2:50 pm EST on Thursday 2 June 2016

Issue Number: 1

Rain and thunderstorms associated with a deepening trough are expected over the Flood Watch area from early afternoon Saturday. The rainfall is then expected to clear to the east by Sunday morning.

Rainfall totals of up to 150 mm are expected over the area between Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning with localised totals up to 200 mm possible over southern parts.

River level rises above the minor flood level are expected.

Heavy rainfall may also lead to localised flash flooding.

Catchments at risk within the Flood Watch area include the Mary, Noosa, Maroochy, Mooloolah, Pine, Caboolture, tributaries of the BrisbaneRiver, Logan, Albert, Gold Coast rivers and creeks, the Upper Condamine and the BorderRivers.



ESMU has issued an alert (advice only) to Govnet agencies:

South-east Queenslanders have been warned to prepare for dangerous weather conditions predicted to hit the region on
Saturday 4th June 2016.


Weather bureau senior forecaster Micheal Knepp said a trough looked set to bring intense rain and flash-flooding across
the region, with the majority of rain happening over a period of 12 hours from about lunchtime on Saturday through to the


Mr Knepp said conditions could be as dangerous as a similar system that struck on May 1, 2015.
Three people were killed when severe storms lashed south-east Queensland about the same time last year.
The wild weather soaked communities with up to 100 millimetres of rain in an hour, catching people off guard and causing
dangerous traffic conditions.


"If you recall last year, there were people who unfortunately did die, so if it's flooded forget it, and there is that potential for
localised flooding with this event," he said.
"I'd say its a perfect day to stay indoors because it could be quite serious out there — especially Saturday afternoon into
Saturday evening.


"We are looking at a very significant weather event across south-east Queensland - I cannot stress this enough."
The weather bureau said the strongest impacts were expected along the coastline and into the Sunshine and Gold Coast
hinterland areas.


Gale-force winds and a king tide could cause serious beach erosion.
The system was likely to bring intense rainfall in excess of 250 millimetres in some areas during Saturday afternoon,
leading to flash flooding.


Elsewhere in the south-east, rainfall levels of 50 to 150 millimetres were expected.
There will be rain further inland too, with 20 to 50 millimetres expected right across the southern part of the state, from
south-east of Rockhampton through to St George in the southern inland.
The rain will ease late on Saturday, followed by a blast of westerly winds during Sunday.
