Redlands has had 145.6mm for the month up to 9am this morning, beating its November average of 90.4mm.

Beaudesert recorded 129.8mm, well above the district's monthly November average of 83.4mm.

Greenbank, north of Jimboomba, has had 180.4mm, more than double its November average of 82mm.

The damp conditions are forecast to continue as a trough crosses the state.

Meteorologists 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.

Temperatures will start to climb again towards the end of next week.

The Leslie Harrison Dam at Redlands is spilling as is Wyaralong between Beaudesert and Boonah, while the giant Wivenhoe Dam has risen to 40.1 per cent, up from 36 per cent earlier in the week.
