tropics from an upper trough which lies in the far north of the state. From
Saturday this upper trough will slowly move southwards over the central coast.
A surface trough will likely deepen offshore of the central coast during Sunday

Widespread daily rainfall totals of 50-150 mm are forecast from Saturday
through until Monday, with isolated higher totals in excess of 150 mm possible
associated with storms.

River level rises above the minor flood level are possible.

Black, Bohle, Ross, Haughton, Don, Proserpine and Pioneer Rivers.
