A series of cold fronts will bring yet another wet weekend to the South West with thunderstorms set to hit Sunday morning.

While it will be a mostly clear start to the weekend, the skies will give way to showers and gale force winds which are expected to continue into the coming week.

Approximately 40mm is expected to drop between Sunday and Monday, with some areas within the South West expected to drop up to 80mm.

Capes residents in particular are being warned against the gale force winds and dangerous surf over the weekend.

Showery and windy conditions will continue into Wednesday across the region as the low pressure system makes its way across the southern tip of the State.
