Sydney, which basked in 28-degree heat just yesterday, is forecasted to experience a cooler maximum of 22 degrees today. 

In addition to the anticipated rainfall, Western Australia braces itself for showers and thunderstorms, particularly in the western regions.

While rainfall totals are predicted to range from 5mm to 20mm across most areas, parts of the far south-west could witness substantial accumulations, surpassing 50mm by the end of this week.

This expected precipitation comes as a relief to regions like Perth and Bunbury, which have recently endured their driest seven-month period on record.
