THE eastern two thirds of Queensland - from the tip of Cape York down to the NSW border - is set to receive more rain during the coming week.
The Bureau of Meterology's promising modelling issued on Wednesday morning shows accumulated totals of between 25mm and 50mm of rain for big areas, including currently parched areas of Central Queensland.
While light falls are predicted from Thursday onwards in the south east quarter of the state, the rain is promised to intensify from Sunday onwards.
According to BoM, a trough may linger over northern and central parts of the state from Sunday until Tuesday, potentially deepening and extending southward early next week.
Despite the bullish computer generated mapping, BoM cautioned there was still a high degree of uncertainty around developments at this stage.
"A large high near Tasmania will eventually move into the Tasman Sea early next week, potentially acting with the deepening trough to increase winds along the Queensland coast," BoM statement reads.
"Mostly sunny over the south west interior on Sunday, with a slight to medium chance of showers elsewhere, increasing to a medium to high chance in central and north eastern parts with a chance of a thunderstorm.
"Cloud cover and shower activity may extend across the remainder of the state early next week.
"The chance of thunderstorm activity extending into the northern and central interior also."
BoM says there is a risk of early morning frosts in the southern interior on Saturday, with cooler than average days and warmer nights expected early next week.
According to BoM, there is a greater than 60 per cent chance of most areas of Australia receiving above median rainfall during May to July.
The start of May is typically regarded as the start of northern Australia's dry season.
