WET weather is on the way for south-east Queensland at the end of the week, with storms on the cards for parts of the region.

Weather Bureau meteorologist Lauren Pattie said significant rainfall was expected across the state, with the south-east to be affected on Friday.

"Showers, rain areas and thunderstorms are forecast due to a significant upper low and trough system which enters the far south-west of the state on Wednesday night and sweeps eastwards on Thursday and Friday," she said.

"For that southern region, we expect to see widespread rainfall totals of 10 to 30mm with some isolated heavier falls as well.

"The trough system clears the south and central coasts on Saturday morning and cooler, dryer conditions return, spreading northwards across the state."

In the south-east coast region, including Logan, the Redlands and the Scenic Rim, the chance of rain was 90 to 95 per cent.

In the region's west, there would also be a chance of storms on Friday afternoon and evening.

"Some thunderstorms (are) expected to be severe, with the most likely hazard being damaging wind gusts," Ms Pattie said.

In good news for people feeling the winter chill, Thursday and Friday were expected to see warmer minimum temperatures, up to about 10 degrees in Logan and Beaudesert from 6 degrees earlier in the week.

The Weather Bureau predicts the Redlands will only dip to a very mild 15 degrees on Friday.

Temperatures in Jimboomba were expected to hit 27 degrees on Wednesday, the highest since early May.

Last month the Redlands received a healthy 64mm.
