Keep the brolly out because the rain isn't leaving town yet

WARWICK hasn't seen the last of the wet weather with The Bureau of Meteorology still seeing rain on the radar.

The Bureau of Meteorology recorded a rainfall total of 22mm in the 24-hour period from 9am Friday in Warwick and BOM forecaster Chris Joseph said there's more to come.

"We shouldn't be seeing anymore storms today, it will be more of a good rain and a few showers for today and tomorrow,” he said.

"Areas can expect up to 20-25mm over the weekend.”

The forecaster said we're right on schedule for the wet season.

"These storms and showers have kicked off right on schedule,” Mr Joseph said

"October is when we see the storm season start up so this weather we're seeing is not unusual.”

The highest recorded rainfall for October last year was 25mm Mr Joseph said.

The wet weather is looking to stay after the weekend with another cold system developing.

"Showers are going to stay over the weekend, with it clearing a bit over Sunday and Monday,” Mr Joseph said.

"Further ahead we might see a shower or two with another trough system developing over the week but it shouldn't be as significant as this one.”

Today will reach a top of 15 degrees, with showers developing in the afternoon and evening.

Tomorrow will be slightly warmer with 18 degrees and showers clearing.
