Don't forget the umbrella today - storms and showers are on the radar for most parts of Bundaberg.
 
We have already received 190mm of rain since 9am yesterday, with the city set to record its wettest November since 1934. 
 
So far, the city has recorded 245mm this month with senior meteorologist Rod Dickson adding that is likely to increase. 
 
"It's still raining there at the moment so not 100 per cent sure exactly where we will end up. And with another week to go we are likely to add to that total," Mr Dickson says. 
 
Looking ahead in the forecast, Mr Dickson says locals can expect more rain. 
 
"That trough will cause more heavy falls throughout the day today," he says.
 
"But the good news is it will tend to push off the coast by Saturday, so conditions easing somewhat for the weekend."
 
Road Closures
 
Several roads are already closed across the region including the Booyal Crossing Rd at Morganville and Goodwood Rd at North Isis.
 
Locals are being encouraged to keep up to date through Bundaberg Regional Council's Disaster Dashboard, which can be found at http://disaster.bundaberg.qld.gov.au/
