Some regions in Queensland's south west swept over by ex-tropical cyclone Trevor can look forward to a second chance for relief rain on Friday and Saturday, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

The system that has been dominating the state's weather for the majority of the week largely overlooked the south.

BoM forecaster David Crock said while Charleville had been on the edge of the good stuff, registering 20-30mm on Wednesday and 40-50mm further north, and Windorah had had 40-50mm, totals were a lot less elsewhere.

Birdsville had 28mm and Thargomindah 16mm, with Cunnamulla gauges recording less than 10mm.

Roma had 10mm of light patchy falls on Wednesday, which was mirrored on the Darling Downs.

"It's nothing to write home about," Mr Crock said.

"Trevor will largely wash out on Thursday but some of that moisture will be sticking around to be picked up by the next trough coming through on Friday and Saturday.

"That means Roma and the Central  Highlands could see isolated falls of 30-40mm.

"It won't be as widespread as the last few days."

The ex-tropical cyclone Trevor system was beginning to move east towards Emerald and the Central Highlands on Wednesday evening.

Mr Crock said falls wouldn't be as heavy as they had been earlier in the week but people could expect between 20 and 50mm, along with some isolated 100m falls on Thursday.
