Don’t drive across flooded roads

Moreton Bay Regional Council is urging drivers to avoid flooded roads and take care until flooding subsides.

  • Do not attempt to traverse creeks and other crossings that are clearly under water
  • Be aware that potholes may form during periods of high rainfall. Report potholes to Council

Weather forecast today and Flood Warning

While there is a very high chance of rain today (100 percent), with showers and periods of rain forecast, the risk of widespread heavy rainfall has reduced since yesterday.

The low currently off the southeast Queensland coast may bring isolated heavy rainfall to the Flood Watch area with thunderstorm activity. The most likely timing of the isolated heavy rainfall is from Monday afternoon through to Tuesday evening. The heaviest falls are likely to occur around the Sunshine Coast area on Monday and extending southwards to the Queensland - New South Wales border during Tuesday.

Catchments in South East Queensland are wet from recent rainfall and minor flooding is possible in the Flood Watch area from Monday evening.

Catchments likely to be affected include the Pine and Caboolture Rivers.
