More than 400mm of rain dumped on the Gold Coast in just 24hrs

10:30PM | More than 400mm of rain has fallen in the Gold Coast hinterland since Friday night.

The Gold Coast has been lashed with torrential rain for more than 24 hours thanks to a large and complex weather system sliding south down Australia’s east coast.

Since the event began at around 8pm on Friday through to 9pm on Saturday, a staggering 434mm of rain has fallen at Upper Springbrook.


An incredible 346mm of rain was recorded at Coolangatta and 343mm at Tallebudgera during the same time, the majority of which fell on Saturday afternoon.

Elsewhere, 263mm fell at Mudgeeraba in the 25 hours to 9pm Saturday, while 238mm was recorded at Mt Tamborine, 226mm at Burleigh Waters and 199mm at the Gold Coast Seaway.

The Bureau of Meteorology has cancelled its severe thunderstorm warning as the torrential rain slips south of the border into northern NSW.

A Flood Watch remains in place.
