THE Bureau of Meteorology has wound back rain predictions significantly with an expected deep trough with the potential to form a low pressure system proving weaker than first thought.
Parts of the Sunshine Coast could receive up to 45mm of rain through the day, however there is no longer any danger the region would see the predicted 30mm of rain an hour for a six-hour period later in the day.
BOM forecaster Aditi Sharan said the system would move off the coast overnight into Tuesday with nothing of significance behind it.
Hopes for good, soaking rain have been dashed with potential thunder storms on Friday the only current likelihood for further significant falls.
Beerburrum with 2.8 mm over the past 24 hours appears to have had the most rain to date with Maroochydore 0.2 and Nambour and Tewantin both receiving 0.4mm
Ms Aditi said there were no major features behind the weak trough with just the potential for coastal showers through the rest of the week.
It will get to just 22 degrees after never getting below 20.1 degrees overnight. It will be cloudy throughout the day with falls of 30-45mm expected and winds from the east at 15-25 kmh.
Tomorrow the BOM expects a temperature range from 15 degrees overnight to a day time peak of 25 degrees with rain fall totals between 15-25 mm.
There is a slight chance of a thunder storm on a day that may see showers in the morning and afternoon and winds which would shift from north east to south east at 15-20 kmh before then becoming light early.
Wednesday/s maximum will reach 27 degrees after a 15 degree overnight low on a day when winds would be light and a chance of a shower remains.
Thursday’s temperature would also range from 15-27 degrees on a partly cloudy day with light winds and a slight chance of showers while Friday would reach 29 degrees on another partly cloudy day with winds light early then reaching 15-20 kmh from the north.
Light winds are expected for both days next…
