Storms to lash parts of Qld: Flooded areas get a break

THE wet-season is living up to its name and while today's forecast offers a much needed reprieve for flooded areas in Queensland's south-east, now it's the north's turn.

For the Darling Downs and the Granite Belt we can expect it to be partly cloudy but at this stage the forecast says there will not be storms or rain, according to the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM).

Toowoomba is headed for a top of 25 degrees while Warwick is tipped to hit 28 and Ipswich 29.

Further north on the Sunshine Coast the top temperature is expected to be 27 degrees at Maroochydore and again while it will be cloudy the forecast indicates it won't rain.

However as we move north the day looks wetter.

On the Fraser Coast a shower or two is predicted for Maryborough and Hervey Bay.

Further north in Gladstone and Bundaberg the forecast points to yet more rain with a top of 30 degrees.

And from Rockhampton to Mackay storms are being tipped in the wake of bad weather earlier in the week.

The BOM's computer generated modelling shows large parts of inland Queensland can expect some light rain this evening.

The wet season is living up to its name in Queensland this year. The weather modelling above shows light rains are expected about 2pm across much of inland Queensland today.
