There is a minor flood warning in place for the Meander River and North Esk River, as well as a flood watch for north west, north and north east catchments.
Mr Bolden said strong winds and rainy conditions were expected to continue into the weekend, with flooding a possibility.
"The rainfall event itself is not that spectacular, however the catchments are already saturated and we are anticipating that a lot of what falls will run into rivers and streams," he said.
"As far as a respite of the wind and rain, it really doesn't look like we will be seeing that for the next few days.
"It's really not until we get into Monday and Tuesday of next week, that we will start to see significant easing."
