The thunderstorms are over for now, but that doesn’t mean the weather will be drying up anytime soon, with rain not likely to ease until Monday night or Tuesday.

Faced with a wet and grey weekend, Geraldton Police have called for motorists to stay alert to hazards, turn on their headlights and maintain a safe distance from other cars on the road.

The Bureau of Meteorology recorded 49 ml of rain at the airport since Friday morning, with more on and off showers to come.

Duty forecaster Hillary Wilson said: “It might take a while for things to completely clear up, but as we head into this evening it will be quite isolated shower activity.”

“There will be plenty of gaps in between the showers we do have.”

She added that a “southerly surge” would bring a period of heavy showers tomorrow afternoon.
