SOUTH-EAST Queensland is warming up due to an inland trough moving our way over the weekend, says the Bureau of Meteorology.

BOM meteorologist Peter Markworth said temperatures over the next few days would be warmer than average.

"Looking into the weekend we have this inland trough moving from inland Queensland toward the east coast," he said.

"What that will mean is warmer than average temperatures ahead of the trough and cooler than average temperatures behind the trough.

"So as the transition moves over towards the east coast we can see those cooler temperatures replacing the warmer temperatures as it moves across.

Mr Markworth said minimum temperatures in some areas could be two to three degrees below average.

"That'll put some temperatures into single digits," he said. "The minimum temperatures around south-east Queensland will be in the mid to low teens on Monday morning.

"We are expecting a few thunderstorms and showers... expecting most to be in the south-east and potentially a few severe thundersorms... Saturday afternoon looking into Sunday morning."

The Bureau of Meteorology predicts a 40 per cent chance of rain for Beaudesert, Logan and the Redlands on Saturday with morning temperatures Monday expecting to drop to 13 degrees for the Redlands and 11 degrees for Beaudesert, Boonah, Tamborine and Jimboomba.

Canungra and Kalbar can expect a Monday morning low of 9 degrees.
