WET WEATHER: Gold Coast receives welcome 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 suburbs copping almost 90 millimetres of rain.

From 9.00am Thursday to 9.00am Friday, Coombabah took in 89 millimetres, while Miami received 75 mills.


Burleigh Waters also recorded 76 millimetres of rain, while Molendinar copped 69 mills.

The wet weather doesn’t look like it plans on letting up anytime soon, with showers expected to continue throughout the day today.

Tomorrow is also forecast to be pretty soggy with a thunderstorm also on the cards before the rain gradually begins to ease late on Sunday.

The sun is expected to be back out on Monday, with the Bureau of Meteorology predicting a warm top of 32 degrees, so if you have outdoor plans you may want to save them until then.

Anyone travelling on the roads is also being urged to take it easy, with a number of crashes occurring across the city in the wet weather over the past 24 hours.
