VIDEO: More rainfall for region after Bay exceeds average

UPDATE: We can expect anywhere between 20-50mm of rainfall across the Fraser Coast this week, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

BOM forecaster Harry Clark said showers and storms predicted this week will bring showers to the coast and further inland. 

The showers are expected to be scattered and Mr Clark said it would be the luck of the draw as to how much rainfall different suburbs and towns receive. 

He said the weather pattern was expected to be similar all week with coastal showers more likely in the mornings and any inland activity in the afternoons. 

EARLIER: The weekend storms have helped boost the region's rainfall above average for the month of March. 

The Bureau of Meteorology recorded another 4mm for Hervey Bay overnight Sunday and we've exceeded the long term March average of 139.7mm. 


Just over 140mm has been recorded officially with heavier falls in regional areas outside of Hervey Bay. 

Maryborough's long term March average rainfall is 151.9mm, according to 

The Heritage City has received 110mm so far for the month of March 2017 with more showers expected this week.
