Over the next 4 days, a cold front will pass over the west coast of WA from Sunday morning, with heavy rainfall to hit throughout Sunday and Monday.

How much rainfall can we expect?

Over Sunday and Monday alone we could have as much rainfall in those 2 days as we did for all of July, where Perth recorded 83mm for the whole month.
