Queensland's parched south-west is set for a good soaking later as well large parts of the state, though the north-west is likely to miss out.
BOM meteorologist Lauren Pattie said good rainfall was expected later this week when
"Shower, rain areas and thunderstorms are forecast due to a significant upper low and trough system which enters the far south-west of the state on Wednesday night and sweeps eastward on Thursday and Friday," Ms Pattie said.
"Rain and storms are expected for the south west, mainly the Channel Country on Thursday, some thunderstorms are likely to be severe with the most likely hazard from the wind gusts."
Some locations in the south may exceed their average monthly rainfall for August in a 24 hour period.
On Friday the system moves to the Warrego, Maranoa, Darling Downs and South-East region with heavy falls possible especially near the NSW border.
Sadly none of the rain is set to reach North West Queensland although there is a 20pc chance of rain in Mount Isa on Wednesday.
Mornings will be cool with minimums of 7-11 rising to a top of 31 degrees Wednesday dropping to around 25 by the weekend.
Lake Moondarra is currently at 73.58% capacity while Lake Julius is at 87.83%.
