Sunny days give way to a week of more rain, winds
RESIDENTS made the most of the sunshine and calm surf yesterday, with people hitting Tannum Sands beach to paddleboard, swim and sunbake.
It was the perfect chance to get outdoors ahead of a week of predicted showers and winds from 15 up to 25 knots on the water.
Rockhampton Bureau of Meteorology weather observer James Dickson said light rain was predicted for early in the week, and storms for Friday.
"There is a pretty static weather pattern at the moment," Mr Dickson said, but he noted the ridge coming up the Queensland coast.
Gladstone had almost 74mm of rainfall last week and weather bureau data indicates the area can expect typical January totals.
