The BOM is stating that ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie will continue to generate areas of massive rain in the Southeast Coast districts. Currently, the heaviest rainfall is occurring over much of the Capricornia, Wide Bay and Burnett region, and Southeast Coast districts. Widespread daily rainfall totals of 150 to 250 mm are expected, with significantly higher accumulations possible locally. This rainfall will likely be very intense at times, leading to a risk of severe localised flash flooding.
Locations that may be affected include Gladstone, Kingaroy, Bundaberg, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast.
The focus for heavy rain will continue in southeastern parts of the state today. Widespread daily rainfall totals more than 200 mm are possible, with isolated massive daily totals more than 400 mm possible, mostly around the higher ground in south-east Queensland.
This rainfall is likely to lead to significant river flooding over a broad area, and a Flood Watch is current for coastal catchments.
