SEVERAL roads remain closed around the Gladstone Region today as the clean-up begins from yesterday's wet weather.

Calliope River Rd at Yarwun has just been reopened, according to the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster David Crock said the radar right now might look like Gladstone is in the clear, but the rain was likely to pick up again later this afternoon and possibly into the night.

"It looks like there's some (rain) building upstream north out to sea at the moment," Mr Crock said.

"It's just a really moist air mass we're in at the moment, and it's quite unstable.

"There's plenty of good set up for rain today, tomorrow and into Sunday as well."
