PARTS of Wide Bay, including the Fraser Coast, can expect heavy rainfall tomorrow – with a moderate flood warning for the Mary River in play.
Forecasters with the Bureau of Meteorology said an upper low was moving into southeast Queensland and is expected to result in widespread rainfall from early Friday morning.
“Heavy rainfall is expected to be concentrated around a surface trough which is forecast to develop over the Wide Bay and Burnett district early Friday morning and move slowly southwards during the afternoon and evening.”
Locally intense rainfall could also lead “dangerous and life-threatening flash flooding.”
Minor flooding along the Mary River upstream of Gympie has already occurred and continued rainfall in the catchment could see river levels continue to rise.
At this stage, the Mary River at Maryborough is expected to remain below the minor flood level (5m) during Thursday and into Friday.
Residents are being urged to keep up-to-date with the latest alerts and warning from BOM.
