Deluge hits 1770 with 104mm of rain recorded in 24 hours

SEVENTEEN Seventy has copped massive rainfall overnight, recording 104mm of rain in just 24 hours. 

Southern areas of the Gladstone region enjoyed rain similar to the deluge in Bundaberg.

The weather was more tame in Gladstone city. 

The Gladstone radar station recorded 20.2mm of rainfall between 9am yesterday and 9am today, with 5.2mm falling in the 40 minutes after 10am. 

Gladstone Airport recorded 18.6mm in the same 24-hour period, with the most rain falling between 2.30pm and 5pm (6.8mm). 

Biloela missed out on much-needed rain, only recording 1.8mm over the 24 hours.

Forecasters still hope this much rain so early in the wet season heralds more to come over the next three months. 

The Bureau of Meteorology predicts Gladstone is very unlikely to see showers tomorrow, but the chance of rain will return to 70% by Friday. 

Wednesday and Thursday will be the warmest days of the week, set to reach the low 30s in Gladstone and creeping into the mid-30s elsewhere in the region.
