Weather forecasters are warning the danger from floodwaters is far from over despite blue skies returning to the south east corner.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a major flood warning for the Logan River and a minor warning for the Albert River.

Minor to moderate flood warnings are in place for the Bremer River, Warrill Creek and lower Warrego River.

Flooding is easing along the Bremer River at Three Mile Bridge and along Warrill Creek at Amberley.

No significant rainfall is forecast for this catchment area for the next few days.

The Bremer River at Ipswich is currently at 2.82 metres and remains steady, while Warrill Creek at Amberley peaked at around 6.50metres on Wednesday morning.

It is currently at 4.38 metres and falling, and is expected to fall below the minor flood level tomorrow morning.

Forecaster Livio Regano says the risk hasn't subsided, just yet.

"Floods always lag well behind the weather as we know.

“Right through southern Queensland, we have a lot of flood warnings.”

"We have a major flood warning for the Logan River and minor flood warning for the Albert River, also the Bremer River and Warrill Creek in flood.”

Dozens of roads remain out of action as the clean up continues.

The bureau is reminding people, if it's flooded, forget it.
