UPDATE: Some places on Fraser Coast could get up to 100mm

UPDATE: 

IF an expected trough anchors itself over the Fraser Coast, weather forecaster Andrew Bufalino said we could receive falls between 30-60mm on Sunday and Monday.

He said while it was too hard to pin point the location of the trough at this stage, if it is close to home there could also be isolated falls of up to 100mm in areas of the region.

"If this trough ends up further south falls won't be as high," he said.

"It's too early to pin point exactly where the heavier falls will be at this stage."
