BOM: 'Unsettled' system to bring wet weekend to Gladstone
"MOIST and unsettled conditions" ahead of a trough system will keep the rain pouring over Gladstone until Sunday, according to weather experts.
The Bureau of Meteorology expects intermittent showers to pour over Gladstone for the rest of today and tomorrow, before easing on Sunday.
In the 24 hours to 9am this morning, 10mm has fallen over Gladstone with one isolated shower of a whopping 27mm just south of the city.
BoM meteorologist David Grant said about 10mm would fall on Gladstone today, with the possibility of isolated shower bringing up to 20mm.
"It's going to go in waves, so it might shower for a bit before easing off," he said.
"Generally, most of the rainfall totals should be no more than around 10-15mm around the area."
Mr Grant said conditions, which are expected to dry up on Sunday, are expected to become much warmer by the start of next week, reaching the mid to high-20s on Tuesday.
