Flood, wind warnings as Coast braces for a drenching

EMERGENCY services are on standby as south-east Queensland braces for more wet weather on Sunday that could lead to flash flooding.

The Bureau of Meteorology said there was a "very high (near 100%) chance of showers, increasing to rain periods in the afternoon and evening".

BoM said the Sunshine Coast could expect 30-80mm on Sunday, with the chance of a gusty thunderstorm.

"Heavy falls possible with thunderstorms. Winds north to north-easterly 20-30kmh, turning north-westerly 15-20kmh in the evening."

Some parts of Queensland can expect up to 100mm of rain.

A strong wind warning has been issued for Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast waters on Sunday.

Central and southern inland Queensland received a much-needed drenching on Saturday due to the low pressure system as it moved towards the south-east corner of the state.

Several flash flooding warnings are in place for central and southern Queensland, with 50-80mm of rain predicted
