A lingering monsoon will bring more thunderstorms and flash-flooding to far north Queensland this week.
Two severe weather warnings have been issued as the monsoon trough hangs over the top of the state, the Bureau of Meteorology said.
Areas affected by possible flash-flooding on Tuesday include Ingham, Innisfail, Cardwell, Tully, Rollingstone and Babinda between Cairns and Townsville.
While unusually high tides on Monday night could see the highest tide of the year exceeded by around half a metre in Mornington Island and Karumba in the Gulf of Carpentaria.
"The monsoon trough is across the top of Queensland and is the cause of these two severe weather warnings for high tides in the Carpentaria and possible flash-flooding south of Cairns," a BOM forecaster said.
"It's not expected to move much in the next few days and that will result in further showers and thunderstorms."
The tropical monsoonal low has brought flash-flooding to coastal and inland areas in the most remote parts of the state over Christmas.
Heavy drought-soothing rain has seen motorists stranded in northwest Queensland and also hampered emergency and clean-up teams at a freight train derailment near Julia Creek.
The torrential rainfall saw 10 people stranded by flood waters at Harris Creek near Burketown airlifted to safety on Saturday afternoon, with another seven motorists opting to stay with their vehicles.
