Gold Coast drenched in best rain all year

PARTS of the Gold Coast have received their best rainfall in twelve months overnight, with close to 300mm falling near the Queensland border in the past 24 hours (See rainfall totals below)

Coolangatta residents woke to their wettest day of the year on Sunday with more than 140mm falling across the southern suburb overnight.

A staggering 292mm of rain was recorded further south at Tweed Heads in the 24 hours to 9am. Kingscliff was hit with 278mm and 239mm fell at Banora.

Upper Sprinbrook recorded 113mm, Currumbin Creek 94mm, and Tallebudgera Creek 55mm while widespread falls of 20-40mm were recorded around the rest of the coast.

The deluge resulted in localised flash flooding in several areas, including Coolangatta’s Goodwin Park which was inundated with water.

On Saturday, it was the far northern Gold Coast that copped a drenching with 168mm recorded at Steiglitz Wharf, just north of Jacobs Well, and 92mm at Couran Point.

The rain continues to fall and is expected to continue doing so over the next few hours with moderate to locally heavy falls possible.

At this stage, it looks like we can expect an unstable week of showers, rain and storms ahead.
