Following the wettest July on record for the region, the South West will see a patch of sunny skies before the rain returns once again.

Following a brief reprieve from back to back severe weather warnings, the South West will once again experience winter cold fronts come late Saturday afternoon.

For the Capes, the first of two strong fronts will begin to take affect on Sunday with damaging winds of up to 100 km/h and isolated falls of 10-15mm of rain is expected.

The second, stronger cold front will move through from Monday afternoon and welcome destructive gusts up to 125km/h.

Dangerous surf conditions and higher than normal tides are also expected, with forecast rain on wet south west catchments triggering renewed flooding an associated watched over the region.
