DON'T forget to pack your brolly-Gladstone is set for a soaking this week.
The movement of a monsoonal trough through northern Queensland is responsible for heavy rainfalls in the coming days.
"As the monsoon travels further south, we'll see falls becoming more persistent on Wednesday and Thursday for the Gladstone and Rockhampton region," Brisbane meteorologist Matthew Bass said.
A severe weather warning has been issued for towns north of St Lawrence, with Townsville, Mackay and Cairns expecting total rainfalls to exceed 200mm in the next 24 hours.
Torrential rainfall has already engulfed townships between Cape York and Mackay, with lighter conditions predicted for the Gladstone region.
"The system between Gladstone and Rockhampton is weaker than up north," Mr Bass said.
Between 50-70mm is expected to fall across Gladstone and Rockhampton.
Last weekend Agnes Waters recorded 40mm, with Builyan and Curtis Island notching 30mm and 23.5mm respectively.
"We'll probably see some sun on either Saturday or Sunday," Mr Bass said.
Builyan : 30mm
Curtis Island: 23.5mm
Miriam Vale: 16.5mm
Mount Larcom: 11mm
Agnes Water: 40mm
- Rainfall between Saturday afternoon and Monday morning.
