Thursday 7.30am: It is wet, wet, wet in Gladstone.

But residents can breathe a sigh of relief as the rain eases off.

Bureau of Meteorology Rockhampton duty observer Damian Ousley said the rain should ease, with 25mm to 50mm expected today and about 20mm on Thursday.

He said the coast had received the majority of the downpour as rainfalls varied around the region.

"It's been a bit patchy; as you go inland it drops off a bit," Mr Ousley said.

"For some of the graziers along the coast, it will probably set them up for a reasonable winter."

50-200mm of rainfall was recorded in the 24 hours to 9am Wednesday over coastal river catchments between Yeppoon and Bundaberg.

Further rainfall of up to 260mm has been recorded since 9am Wednesday.

River level rises are occurring in the Calliope, Boyne and Don (Fitzroy) River catchments.

River level rises are possible in the Kolan River and Baffle Creek catchments.
