LATEST 5pm: There was 5-4mm at the automatic weather station at The Hermitage Research Station from 9am to 5pm Sunday.

The rain took the recording for the past week to 44.2mm.

At Stanthorpe, the rain was even less with police reporting only some drizzle.

EARLIER: 12.30pm: SHOWERS starting falling after 1pm Sunday in the Warwick and Stanthorpe areas.

In the three hours since 9am Sunday, Warwick had recorded 4mm while Stanthorpe missed out early in the day.

There was 6mm rain in Warwick to 9am Sunday and 2mm at Stanthorpe.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Dean Narramore said there was a high chance of more rain today.

"At this stage, I expect 15mm to 25mm and possibly much heavier if you are under a thunderstorm,” he said.

"On Monday, the falls will be less, one to 10mm, and then the weather will warm up and the rain clear on Tuesday.”

While looking at the BOM radar at 11.55am Sunday, Mr Narramore said he expected showers in the Warwick and Stanthorpe areas in an hour or so and then to look out for thunderstorms later in the day.

His forecast was close to the mark as light rain started at Stanthorpe just after 1pm and in Warwick 15 minutes later. While the rain wasn't heavy, it was great follow-up rain for primary producers struggling with a long drought.

Most primary producers on the Southern Downs close to Warwick have recorded more than 40mm while many in the ranges above Killarney are well over 100mm for the four days.

The highest in the 24 hours to 9am Sunday was Wilson's Peak east of Killarney with 91mm , Victoria Hill north-west of Warwick had 81mm and Mt Castle near Allora had 87mm..
