Heavy rain is forecast to keep drenching parts of Queensland, with the weather bureau predicting falls of 160mm across the southeast that could bring life-threatening flash flooding.

Gympie, Bundaberg, Hervey Bay, Cooroy, Nambour and Rainbow Beach are all on flood watch on Friday as a surface trough moves across the coast.

“Locally intense rainfall which may lead to dangerous and life-threatening flash flooding is possible with thunderstorms during Friday afternoon,” the BOM said in an alert on Thursday.

Major flooding is forecast for Laidley Creek and the Mary River at Gympie, with moderate flood warnings for the Bremer, Lockyer and Brisbane rivers on Friday.

The continued rainfall comes as a man was found safe and well after disappearing near a campsite south of Gympie in the state’s southeast.

Motorists are reminded to heed the warnings and not to drive through flooded roadways.
