Wet weather on the way for Granite Belt

THE Granite Belt will experience a wet end to the week.

While the region isn't expected to face heavy downpours like parts of the east coast, Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Julian de Morton said there was some rain on the way for Stanthorpe and surrounds.

He said it was likely the region would receive about 15-30mm of rain on Friday.

"We could see some falls a little bit higher than that in some areas," he said.

Overall, Mr de Morton said regions west of the Great Dividing Range would not receive the "huge totals" forecast for coastal areas.

The bulk of the rain is expected early Friday through to early Saturday, with some showers likely for the following days.
