Storms could return to SEQ after a lashing on the weekend

STORMS that lashed south east Queensland over the weekend are still threatening the region.

Light rain falling on parts of the coast could intensify significantly if storm activity dumping heavy rain offshore makes its way back west, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

The bureau cancelled a severe weather warning shortly before 4.50am but BOM senior forecaster Michelle Berry said there was at least a 50 per cent chance of the storms moving back on shore.

"There's some heavy shower and storm activity just off the coast at the moment," she said.

"It's not moving very quickly but there is some possibility of it getting at least to the coastal fringe this morning and then we should see other development through inland parts mid-morning into early afternoon."
