BIG WET: Rain and soggy weather set to hang around

MORE patchy wet weather is on the way for most of the state, but some areas hit their average monthly rainfall in just one day over the weekend.

Meteorologist Lauren Pattie from the Bureau of Meteorology said more rain was forecast for the start of this week, particularly for the northern and eastern parts of the state.

"Last week, we saw some quite isolated heavy falls; in the next few days, the falls will be more localised, but we might still get some heavy rain in some areas,"? she said.

The southwest is forecast to stay dry this week, but the ­recent downpour managed to reach some of the drought-declared regions.

Richmond saw falls of 72mm from Sunday to Sunday, while Woodbine also received decent rain, collecting 144mm over the seven days.

Up to a dozen towns and suburbs have seen falls greater than 300mm in the past week.

Townsville collected 232mm on Saturday alone, almost topping its monthly average for February in just one day.

In Brisbane, the temperature is expected to hit 33C today, the Gold Coast 31C and Toowoomba 30C. Longreach is predicted to get to 38C, while Mount Isa is expected to reach 39C.
