BOM: 'Odd thunderstorm': Trough hours away from Gladstone

"A SERIES" of troughs expected to hit Gladstone in the coming days will bring a wet end to the week, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

BoM weather expert Lauren Pattie said the "odd thunderstorm" may be hidden in the upper-trough that will reach the region in the early hours of tomorrow morning.

Ms Pattie said the upper trough, which had already soaked the state's south-east brought falls of up to 40mm, would bring "cloud build up" to Gladstone today with intermittent showers.

But the rain would pour as of tomorrow morning, with scattered falls expected to exceed 10mm in some areas.

Ms Pattie said we there's some uncertainty over the next few days, with tomorrow expected to be a "clearing day" before it ramps up again by Saturday afternoon.

"So the trough will move through, then it will break. It comes and then it clears again," she said.

Ms Pattie said the upper troughs are "driving that weather" but a surface trough is adding to the instability.
