Queenslanders living in the southeast pocket can expect the weather to be muggy and uncomfortable for the rest of the week with forecasts of severe thunderstorms.
Almost 16,000 Energex customers in southeast Queensland remained affected by power outages after 9pm on Tuesday after storms hit the state's southeast coast.
Most of the region, stretching from Noosa to around the Gold Coast, were affected by storms on Tuesday, a Bureau of Meteorology spokesman told AAP.
A wind gust of 96 km/h was recorded at Nambour at 4.34pm.
While a severe thunderstorm warning for southeast Queensland was cancelled, a warning remained in place on Tuesday evening for parts of the Wide Bay and Burnett forecast district.
A total of 15,742 Energex customers were still being affected by power outages at 8.30pm, including in the Brisbane City, Somerset Regional and Scenic Rim Regional councils.
More than 13,000 of these were in the Sunshine Coast council area.
Sticky conditions that have hung around for days are expected to continue due to humidity and temperatures expected to last through the week, but there will be some relief with north to northeasterly winds sweeping across the Coral Sea and bringing a breeze.
Showers are more likely in the southeast corner because of a surface trough in central Queensland, which comes after days of rain and storms that have delighted farmers in some parts.
Rainfall warnings are in place in that part of the state.
