Western Australia is set to get hit with strong winds and torrential rain as wet conditions sweep the country’s eastern states this week.
The mercury is expected to drop across Australia as showers move in with 20-40mm of rain predicted to fall over Sydney on Monday.
The cold front is also due to hit Victoria and Queensland from Monday, bringing cooler mornings in Melbourne and the chance of storms in Brisbane’s Bayside Area.
In the country’s west, a warning for severe thunderstorms with heavy rainfall and large hail was cancelled just after 5pm on Sunday.
The thunderstorms were due to hit the state’s south and mid-west, including Perth.
However, residents in the metropolitan area and the southwest could still be impacted by damaging wind gusts and heavy rain, the Bureau of Meteorology tweeted.

Some roads were likely to be closed while swimmers, surfers and anyone aboard a watercraft were advised to head for shore.
