Showers and storms to continue for Logan and Scenic Rim, but tipped to ease off by the weekend

There is more wet weather on the way for south-east Queensland this week, with the Bureau of Meteorology urging residents to keep the brolly handy for a few more days.

Showers and thunderstorms will continue the wet start to 2020 for Logan and the Scenic Rim, forecasters predict.

The experts say there is a 90 per cent chance of showers over the next two days, with thunderstorms likely today.

Tomorrow, they say there is the chance of a thunderstorm.

Overnight temperatures are expected in the mid-20s both nights, with daytime highs of about 30 degrees predicted.

The conditions are caused by an upper trough over Queensland which is almost stationary.

Showers and storms were set to ease into the weekend, according to meteorologist Peter Markworth.

He said the showers would be confined to the coastal areas, and storms were unlikely.

"On Saturday and Sunday, we are not expecting many storms at all," Mr Markworth said.

Temperatures which have dipped to below average will return to those highs by the weekend, Mr Markworth said, with a slight drop in humidity.

He predicted a high of 31 degrees for the coast on Saturday, Mr Markworth tipped higher temperatures of 32-34 degrees further inland.
