SOME of the best rain in months has soaked Jimboomba and surrounding districts with the Bureau of Meteorology and local residents reporting falls of more than 100mm.

Meterologist Harry Clark said 76mm had fallen at Flagstone Creek and 103mm at Bahrs Scrub to 9am today.

“Yesterday there was a high in the Tasman Sea directing rain to the coast, there was also a coastal trough, and an upper trough which made the showers even stronger,” he said.

“It was a convergence of cells which helped it along yesterday.”

Due to the heavy showers, large pot holes were created on the Mount Lindesay Highway.

Police were directing traffic around several issues just south of Jimboomba this morning.

Mr Clark said residents should be aware of minor flood warning for the Logan River.

“We are expecting to see more showers through the week,” he said.

“They shouldn’t be as heavy as yesterday as it has moved north.

“There is the possibility of a thunderstorm on Thursday.”
