With rain expected to continue for the rest of the week, Bundaberg locals are being warned to take care on our roads.

Some areas of Queensland have recorded the heaviest May rain in a decade this week, as a weather system grips many parts of the state.

While it may not feel like Bundaberg has copped much of a drenching, data from the Bureau of Meteorology shows the town has already seen more than triple the amount of rain we saw for the entire month of May last year.

There is still up to 100 mm forecast to fall in Bundy on Friday.

Acting sergeant Gordon Hard from Bundaberg Highway Patrol is urging drivers to be patient, be careful and drive to the conditions.

"Bundaberg police are just hoping that everyone drives safely and enjoys the little bit of rain that we are getting," he says.

"Hopefully we won't get any major flooding."
