South East Queenslanders are being told to keep a close eye on the weather bureau's radars today, with several storms lashing the area from early til late.
The region was awoken by a thundery storm at around 4am.
"We had 49mm at Woody Point, near Redcliffe. Fernvale had 46, Samford 42... so there have been some pretty decent falls even from the early morning storms" said forecaster Chris Joseph, at 10.30am.
Next to cop it was Logan, from about 10am.
"We had 35 mm at Slacks Creek, near the Logan catchment area, so there are some pretty heavy rain totals still on the way and also the added danger of flash flooding."
The first severe weather warning of the day was issued just after 11am.
"We are in a very active storm period right now and we're going to see further activity through the next 12 hours at least", said Joseph.
"This whole area is under the influence of an upper level trough which could lead to severe storms at any stage through the next 6-12 hours"
