Residents across south-east Queensland are being warned to brace for even more wild weather as the threat of a cyclone looms.

There is a moderate chance that cyclone Linda could form around the Solomon Islands today.

This tropical low system is set to move towards the south east coast of Queensland, bringing gale force winds and dangerous surf, likely to hit on Wednesday and Thursday.

The Bureau of Meteorology is expected to put out a dangerous surf warning for this region this morning.

The full extent of the weather will not be clear until the system moves closer.

Redland City council has issued a warning to prepare for wild weather and have set up sandbagging stations for the community.

The Sunshine Coast State Emergency Service is also on standby and have 3000 sandbags ready to go.

 

The wild weather preparations in the south comes as flooded areas of northern tropical Queensland continue their clean up after the extended deluge.

Communities up north can look forward to a generally dry week, with just the odd shower expected early in the week allowing flood waters to recede.

But it will only be a short reprive, with rain and storms predicted to redevelop from early next week, potentially bringing more than 100 mm over a few days and causing further flooding.
