About 45mm of rain is expected in Hervey Bay on Saturday but Sunday could be clearer with 8mm of rain predicted.

The wet weather comes as the Coast experienced some unique weather thanks to a super blue blood moon.

The king tide came just one month after another king tide hit Hervey Bay in January.
