Gold Coast receives welcome downpour – but it’s not over yet!

The sun may be shining across the Gold Coast now, but it was a very different scene this morning.

The city copped a drenching over the past 24 hours, with some parts of the coast recording more than 50 millimetres of rain.

The northern Gold Coast appears to have been the most saturated, with 51mm falling at Monterey Keys up until 9.00am.


While Coomera Shores also recorded 41mm of rain in the past 24 hours.

Although not as intense, rain also fell on the Southern Gold Coast, with Tallebudgera copping 21 millimetres and Coolangatta taking in 17mm.

We’re being warned the wet weather is not over yet, with heavy rain expected to lash the city over the next few days.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology, 125 millimetres is expected to fall from tomorrow until Sunday.

It’s looking likely at this stage that Friday and Saturday will be the worst, with thunderstorms also on the cards.

Temperatures remain steady and will hang around a high of 21 degrees and low of 15C.
