GC WEATHER: Months worth of rain possible following overnight downpour

Gold Coasters might not want to put the umbrella away just yet, with the wet weather set to stick around for at least the next few days.

It comes after the city received a welcome downpour overnight and this morning, with some parts copping almost 60 millimetres of rain.

To 6.00am this morning, Pacific Pines took in 35 millimetres, while Molendinar received 36 mills.

Wongawallan also recorded 39 millimetres of rain, while copped Clagiraba took in 40 mills.

Upper Springbrook in the Hinterland appears to have copped the most of it, with 59 millimetres of rain falling overnight.

The wet weather doesn’t look like it plans on letting up anytime soon, with the weather bureau warning we could see another 30 millimetres fall across the city today.

The average monthly rainfall for October is 87.4 mills, so it is quite possible the Gold Coast could see more than a month’s worth of rain fall this week alone.

Tomorrow is forecast to be pretty soggy with a thunderstorm also on the cards for Thursday and Friday.

The sun is expected to be back out in time for the weekend, with the Bureau of Meteorology predicting a sunny top of 28 degrees for Saturday and 26C on Sunday.
