More wet weather forecast for Southern Downs this week

THE Southern Downs is in for a week's soaking, with forecasts of up to 50mm of rain in coming days.

Following Monday night's storms, the Bureau of Meteorology is predicting falls of 25 to 50mm of rain for the region through until early next week.

While the rain won't be drought breaking, bureau spokesman Jess Carey said it would be welcome after a dry winter in many areas.

"The Darling Downs is looking at a relatively wet week with showers tending to rain at times," he said. "We're not expecting any floods at this stage."
