MORE wet weather is on its way, with showers and a possible storm forecast for Perth.

The Bureau of Meteorology said there was a 95% chance of showers bringing up to 15mm of rain.

There’s a chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon, with possible heavy rain falls.

Expect southwesterly winds of between 15 and 25 km/h, which will become light in the late evening.

A strong wind warning remains in place for Perth local waters, Geraldton coast, Lancelin coast, Perth coast, Bunbury Geographe coast, Leeuwin coast, Albany coast and Esperance coast.

An earlier severe thunderstorms warning was cancelled, but the Department of Fire and Emergency Services said motorists should still take extra care on the roads.

“The immediate threat of severe thunderstorms has passed,” DFES said in a statement.

“However, thunderstorm activity will continue today over the South West Land Division, the Goldfields and the southern Gascoyne.

“The situation will continue to be monitored, and if any further severe thunderstorms are expected then a severe thunderstorm warning will be re-issued.

“State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers respond on a priority basis and people are asked to remain patient.”

Thursday is forecast to be mostly sunny with a maximum of 17 degrees, before the rain returns for Friday and Saturday.
