SOUTHEAST Queenslanders can expect a wet start to 2015, with steady showers continuing all week.

Coolangatta and Upper Springbrook recorded the region's biggest rainfalls, with 153 and 116mm in the 24 hours to 9am Sunday.

Forecaster Brett Butschke from Weatherzone said the wet had reached all parts of the southeast.

"We've had a very slow-moving low pressure trough, that's probably the best kind if you want a lot of rain," he said.

"It's been angling from the northwest to the southeast of the state and the moisture is at its greatest near the coast, and that's where the biggest rainfall has been."

He said the skies were going to gradually clear.
