The Gold Coast has recorded its wettest day since February with some areas of the city copping more than 100 millimetres of rain since yesterday.
That’s well above the Gold Coast’s July average of 45.6mm.
It’s all thanks to a deep coastal trough and weak low that has been moving very slowly along the southeast coast.
