Wild weather is expected to sweep across southeast Queensland on Tuesday, with Gold Coast beaches closed due to the treacherous conditions.
A low pressure system sitting off the coast should deliver heavy rainfall and strong winds from Brisbane across to the Darling Downs, while Gold Coast residents are being warned to take care ahead of another wet day on the tourist strip.
All beaches have been closed because of dangerous inshore currents and large swells.
After copping almost 200mm in parts of the region over the weekend, another 60-100mm is forecast for the 24-hours to Wednesday with gale force wind gusts.
Gold Coast City Council's disaster management centre says the risk to the city is low, however, they're warning about the dangers of flash flooding, with several road closures in flood-prone areas.
More than 110mm of rain was recorded on the coastal fringe from Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning.
Conditions are not expected to be as troubling as those across the border in the NSW northern rivers region, where a severe weather warning was in place on Monday.
