THE WEATHER is set to smile on us again just in time to return to work.

A wet and wild weekend will be a distant memory come the middle of this week, with above average temperatures, clear skies and still conditions the norm.

Great news for Splendour In The Grass goers!

For locals looking to escape the chills as about 24mm of rain was dumped on us from Friday to Sunday, nothing could beat the flicks.

All reports from Birch Carroll and Coyle were it was a bumper weekend, one staffer confirming most sessions were booked out on both Saturday and Sunday with Tarzan, Finding Dory and Hunt for the Wilderpeople the orders of the day.

"Yesterday (Saturday) just about every session was sold out, especially in the morning," the staff member said.

For the festival heads, the forecast couldn't be any better, a bright forecast hopefully enough to dry out some of the typical Splendour mud.

Weatherzone meteorologist Craig McIntosh said combined upper-level and surface troughs had resulted in the damp weekend, but a high pressure ridge building would push the clouds away for the Coast.

"It's (trough system) retreated north... away from south-east Queensland now," Mr McIntosh said.

He said we may expect the odd Monday shower, but by Tuesday we'd be looking at clear skies, warm days, and above-average night-time temperatures, but rain will fall in the regions around us.

"Tuesday to Saturday is looking the goods," Mr McIntosh said.
