ISOLATED showers and storms are forecast for the Darling Downs and Granite Belt on Sunday.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Gabriel Branescu said the upper trough which had been influenced the weather in the area had moved off shore.

"The showers and storms on Sunday will mainly be over the eastern part of the area,” Mr Branescu said.

"It will stay cloudy on Sunday so temperatures will be five degrees below the October average.”

In the 24 hours from 9am Saturday, the best rain was 22m at Carr's Lookout, 20mm at Queen Mary Falls and 12mm at Spring Creek.

Mr Branescu said there would be still some showers and storms on Monday with up to 10mm and again predominately in the eastern areas of the district.

The biggest chance of rain next week will be on Thursday when showers and storms are forecast.

"We expect up to 10mm in the eastern parts of the district and 5mm in more western areas,” he said.
