The Bureau sent a severe weather warning for people in parts of Queensland's Wide Bay and Burnett and Southeast Coast Forecast Districts from Sunday through to Tuesday.

Heavy rainfall is going to develop from Seventeen Seventy to Caloundra on Sunday night and into Monday. The precipitation is expected between 120 to 160mm in some areas.

Whilst, according to BoM, there is going to have 200 to 250mm of rain that Coastal communities including Fraser Island are able to face over six hours. Moreover, severe thunderstorms will likely develop across parts of Central Queensland on Sunday. 

In addition, there is possible a drenching in Brisbane on Monday.

BoM meteorologist Michael Gray told News Corp residents should get well prepared for windy and wet weather. 

He said that Stay home and stay safe. It was going to be aa bit of wild couple of days for some parts of the state. 

NSW to cop another drenching

The final remaining NSW residents who were required to leave their homes by floods have only just been permitted to return but there is another storm system on its way. This storm has capable of swamping already-soaked catchments.

Those living in low-lying parts of Freemans Reach on the Hawkesbury River, north of Sydney, were on Thursday night given permission to go home, 11 days after they were ordered to leave.

The all-clear announcement was issued by the State Emergency Service after assessing damage in the area, and the final evacuation order that lifted following widespread flooding across NSW.

With the possibility of stormy wet weather on the way, NSW SES Incident Controller Maria Frazer said that residents should prepare their homes themselves to prevent damage as well as minimize the workload of exhausted volunteers.

“The Bureau has told us there is still a high degree of uncertainty with this weather as it moves south,” Ms. Frazer said. 

“But we do know that Catchments across the Northern Zone are sodden from recent flooding and affected catchments are likely to respond quickly to further rainfall.”

The warning comes as the state's Environment Protection Authority said last month's intense flooding followed by warm, sunny weather was causing fish deaths and bad smells.
