RELENTLESS: Get-set for more storms and sticky temps

THE wet weather is set to continue in many parts of Queensland today after flood warnings were issued for four river systems throughout Sunday.

And today more or less every part of Queensland is expected to weather hot, sticky conditions followed by storms.  

Yesterday afternoon the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) issued a minor flood warning for the Bohle River for areas inland from Townsville.

Another warning was in place for the Dawson River with the Central Queensland towns of Taroom and Theodore - inland from Bundaberg - expected to witness minor flooding.  

The area around Mundaberra - west of Maryborough - was also tipped to witness minor flooding overnight with the Bureau of Meteorology warning flooding was likely on the Auburn, Boyne and Burnett Rivers.

Meanwhile at Gympie the Mary River was expected to fall below the minor flood level throughout Sunday - the river level there was sitting at 7.94 metres on Sunday morning.

In terms of what we can expect today the Bureau's forecast points to sticky, hot day followed by storms and some rain right across Queensland.

Today the Maroochydore forecast points to a solid 90 per cent chance of rain and possible storms for the Sunshine Coast - although at this stage only 20mm of precipitation is expected.

It's going to be hot and sticky on the Coast with temperatures forecast to reach 31 degrees.

It's a similar story on the Fraser Coast with top temps of 31 degrees and storms also expected throughout the day.

The same forecast of storms and temperatures in the low 30s is in place for Bundaberg, Rockhampton and Mackay.

Ipswich, Toowoomba and Warwick are also set to cop storms and temperatures in the low 30s.

And while many areas have had a month's worth of rain over the weekend it looks as though the big wet is set to continue through the week with a new low forecast to make its way over the Guld of Carpentaria and drench the state's inland areas.
