Bracing for wild weather

SOUTHEAST Queensland is bracing for heavy rainfall and possible flooding as a weather system moves down the coast.

The low system was situated approximately 55 kilometres east northeast of Rainbow Beach this morning and was moving in a south southeasterly direction at 29 kilometres per hour.

Meteorologists have warned the system could bring a total of 120mm which may lead to flash flooding in and around coastal areas.

Locations that may be affected include the Sunshine Coast, Moreton Island, Stradbroke Island and Brisbane.

Damaging winds, with peak gusts of around 90km/hr, may also develop about coastal areas of the Southeast Coast district.

Flood Warnings are current for various rivers and streams; refer to www.bom.gov.au/qld/warnings.

The next warning is due to be issued by 5pm Thursday.
