WHILE the next four days appear set to be dry for much of the state, some good rain is predicted for the Burnett, much of Central Queensland and North Queensland from the weekend on.

However, the south west Queensland and far western Queensland appear set to miss out.

Meanwhile, BoM's three month out says above average rainfall is likely in many areas of the north in March.

However, central and southern Queensland is more likely to see below average rainfall from March to May, BoM says.

Most of the southern half of Australia is unlikely to see significantly above or below average rainfall during autumn.

Bom said recent rainfall over parts of eastern Australia has not ended the drought for most areas.

"Several months of above average rainfall are required for this to occur," the forecast says.

"Major climate drivers like the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) and the Southern Annular Mode (SAM) are neutral and forecast to remain neutral through autumn.

"When these major climate drivers are neutral, we're less likely to widespread, above or below average seasonal rainfall."
