SOME areas of the Scenic Rim woke up to evidence of decent rainfall overnight with flooded fields and sodden gardens bringing a welcome surprise.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Rosa Hoff said Kooralbyn recorded the highest rainfall with 90 millimetres since 9am yesterday.

"It was the result of showers which started yesterday afternoon and developed overnight, picking up after 4am today," she said.

Ms Hoff said Beaudesert received 25 to 30 millimetres since 9am yesterday, Boonah copped 32mm and Canungra up to 10mm.

While Tamborine received about 44mm, Tamborine Mountain only recorded 10mm.

"This was due to a storm system further south-west that tracked towards Cedar Creek where 29mm was recorded," Ms Hoff said.

"Ten to 20mm fell in the Logan area with higher totals to the west, where Lower Quinzeh received 50mm."

Ms Hoff said BOM predicted more rain today and tomorrow.

"We will be looking at continuing showers and storms, particularly tomorrow," she said.

"We expect these will ease back on Sunday to normal conditions."
