A section with sunshine and light winds comes to an end. Up to 100 mm of rain will soak the coast for seven days.

Rain clouds are expected to set in on Tuesday and remain on the Sunshine Coast for more than a week.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Kimba Wong said the rain would gradually get heavier from Wednesday and the heaviest on Saturday and Sunday.

“As of (Monday), the wind is really turning more on land and more moisture is being returned to the air,” she said.

She said there was a high pressure system moving towards the Tasman Sea causing the wet weather and the change in east wind direction.

“We may see increasing swell from the east so it will be good for some,” she said.

Ms. Wong said the Sunshine Coast could receive more than 100mm of rain during the week with isolated falls between 2o and 30mm forecast.
