Intermittent heavy showers yesterday were bad news for the English cricket team which was trying to play an intra-squad warm-up match at Redlands for the looming Gabba Test.

On-off rain washed out most play at Peter Burge oval at Wellington Point while a string of car accidents in the wet conditions were reported this morning, particularly in Logan.

Tamborine-Oxenford Road at Wongawallan was closed due to flash flooding and there were several crashes in the district.

Beaudesert had 25.2mm in the 24 hours to 9am, bringing its monthly total to 89.8mm.

The district's monthly November average is 83.4mm.

Greenbank had 65.4mm in 24 hours to bring its monthly total so far to 137.4mm, well above its November average of 82mm.

Redlands recorded 58.2mm in 24 hours.

The bayside district has had 107mm for the month, beating its November average of 90.4mm.

Weather Bureau forecasters say daily showers are expected in the Redlands into next week.

The good season in the Beaudesert and Jimboomba districts is expected to continue at least in the short term, with the likelihood of rain easing to 60 per cent on Tuesday.

Meterologists yesterday announced that potentially rain bearing La Nina climate conditions were under way in the Pacific Ocean.

This increases the potential for rain, may produce more cyclones in the north and generally cooler conditions across the state.
