GALLERY: Weather tipped to ease off

A severe weather warning for the South Coast has now been lifted, but that didn’t stop the rain from bucketing down in and around Eden over the past few days.

96.2mm was recorded at the Eden Caravan Park rainfall gauge on Wednesday, while Wyndham resident Elisa Thomas told the Magnet's Facebook page on Thursday morning that 183mm had been recorded in the town since the rain began on Tuesday afternoon.

It seems the heaviest of the rain is over, with the Bureau of Meteorology forecasting 15-30mm across Thursday and Friday.

The rainfall should ease late on Friday, with a chance of small showers on the weekend.

Drivers are being warned to slow down and adapt to changed road conditions, with flooding on roads including Back Creek Road at Nethercote proving problematic.
