MORE rain and thun­der­storms are ex­pected to hit the Wide Bay Bur­nett re­gion in the com­ing days with an up­per trough set to im­pact the western part of the state by the week­end.

Bu­reau of Metere­ol­ogy me­tere­ol­o­gist Richard Wardle said the fore­cast for the com­ing days was for rain­fall and thun­der­storms.

“Thurs­day will be a cloudy day with a medium chance of show­ers in the morn­ing and late af­ter­noon with a thun­der­storm de­vel­op­ing,” Mr Wardle said.

“Friday will be partly cloudy with a chance of a thun­der­storm and rain.”

Mr Wardle said there was a strong chance this week­end would be wet.

“It’s go­ing to be wet with a high chance of show­ers and thun­der­storms de­vel­op­ing,” he said.

“We’re well and truly in storm sea­son and we had a storm on Tues­day night that crossed the Wide Bay and we ex­pect the ac­tiv­ity to keep up within the next few weeks.”

The Bu­reau of Metere­ol­ogy re­leased the trop­i­cal cy­clone out­look on Monday.

“We usu­ally get around four cy­clones in the Coral Sea and one of those cy­clones will cross the coast,” Mr Wardle said.

Over the past week good rain­falls have been recorded in the re­gion and Mr Wardle be­lieves it will con­tinue.

“In­tense rain is quite com­mon so it’s not out of the ques­tion that we will ex­pe­ri­ence huge rain­fall,” he said.
