Winter has well and truly arrived in Geraldton, with the cold, drizzly weather expected to continue for much of the week.

There was 14.mm in the rain gauge at Geraldton Airport as of 12.30pm today, with locals likely to wake to more early morning showers tomorrow.

Temperatures will drop to a chilly 6C overnight on Thursday and Friday, but those willing to brave the cold can rug up and enjoy the sunshine after days of grey skies.

Winds of up to 30km/h will make scarves an essential accessory on Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday.

Maximums of between 16-21C forecast for the rest of the week.

Locals should stay dry while they enjoy their outdoor activities at the weekend before the rain is forecast to return on Sunday afternoon.

Weekend showers bring Geraldton’s monthly rainfall total to more than 37mm, with the June average sitting at 58.6mm.

The wettest June in the last decade was in 2012, when Geraldton recorded a monthly total of 120mm.
