No probs gleno.

Never ever take the positions or timings of the rainfall areas literally on model maps like the one below from the latest ACCESS-C run but nevertheless, it does provide useful guidance about the general bigger picture on what could happen overnight through tomorrow - in this case, its scenario still suggests a general overall increase in the extent of shower activity from early tomorrow more-so over southern parts. I still wouldn't expect anything epic though.

Map from Weatherzone Layers.

Thanks for your wisdom Ken. Cant see that map though, the smart phone not so smart after all.
Still very humid, got more water out if the aircon than the sky. Hope that changes tomorrow. Need to water all my plants otherwise.

Steady showers here on the GC now (Robina), and the radar showing a band of rain creeping north towards the border.

Geez, come back Mt Stappy, all is forgiven! Sitting here in the hinterland with gutters overflowing and Marburg makes it look like a gentle shower.

Up to 145mm of rain has fallen at Bonogin behind the Gold Coast so far since 9am yesterday.

Some other places in SE QLD have gotten over 100mm so far as well.... many other places have received 50-100 mm.
Brisbane's received 57.4mm so far.

The rain was coming down pretty heavy late last night as I was driving through Salisbury with ponding on some parts of the roads. Rainfall since 9am yesterday:

Certainly was pretty wet out this way last night. At one stage the pool overflow pipe could keep up with the rain rate filling the pool. Bugga
Our official gauge says 32mm but our area certainly had a great deal more.

65mm in my gauge here north of Beenleigh. Absolutely fell out of the sky around midnight. Came from the south east. Apparently some local roads to the south of here had flash flooding

Warwick Eye - your post last night. Heard earlier on ABC radio - 5mm southwest edge Warwick (Shand) - assume overnight. My total in Glennie Heights since 9.00am yesterday is 31mm with about 8mm of that overnight. Showers continuing.

Was woken up at about 1:30 by very heavy rain, checked the radar and saw a very slow moving cell.

I was concerned things might get nasty but thankfully the rain rate eased off. Got 56mm in total.

35.7 for me last night. If this solid, consistent rain keeps up we could see a few more 100+ falls in the usual places today.

Can confirm Bonogin is good and soggy, 166mm to 9am in my gauge, and it's still raining steadily. All the usual causeways are under, although the ABC got it crossed up earlier saying that Somerset Dr, Mudgeeraba was closed, when it was in fact still open. The water features in the back garden were pretty impressive at the height of things last night.

Thanks Signalman. Yes, I see more light rain and showers over the area this morning. Nice total for you. Any rain helps. Too bad there was not more over and around Leslie Dam.
Cheers,
Michael

So now both Doppler radars are off line Mt Kanigan until 4:00pm 10/03/18 and of course Stappy is still out.
Oh Well, there is always a work-around! :-)
