WEATHER: Thunderstorms will hit the Central and North Burnett for the rest of the week.

STORM season is running late this year but Queensland will see more like Wednesday's deluge in Brisbane, the Bureau of Meteorology says.

While they might not be as intense as the thunderstorm, which led to isolated flash flooding and produced nearly a month's rain in 30 minutes in some suburbs, storms will happen across the state.

BOM forecaster Bryan Rolston said despite a predicted dryer than average summer a severe thunderstorm was normal for Queensland summer.

"This is normal conditions we would expect to get in November," he said.

"But because we had a dry October everyone has forgotten about it."

Mr Rolston said the storm system was set to move inland over the coming days and could provide much-needed rain for inland Queensland.

He said the summer would remain dry, but Queensland was prone to isolated thunderstorms.

"It is looking like it will be just under average, with the El Nino this year rain will be down," Mr Rolston said.

"But that doesn't stop thunderstorms.

"One random event can still occur and produce quite a bit of rain."

The bureau predicts rain into next week.
