A COLD front moving through on Thursday could see rainfall from Jurien Bay to Esperance with up to five millimetres forecast for most areas.

Areas following the coast between Margaret River and Albany could see up to 10mm as the front passes through.

The Bureau of Meteorology has predicted that this front would continue through to the southern bite on Friday, delivering up to 10mm of rain for the Esperance region and around 5mm at Ravensthorpe.

Continuing through to the weekend there may be a possible shower in the South East Coastal area, with sunny weather forecast for the remainder of the Wheatbelt.

By next Monday there is a chance of another cold front but when Farm Weekly went to press it was yet to be confirmed.

This year's May weather has followed a similar pattern to last season with limited rainfall at the start of May, 2018.

The highest rainfall recorded for May this year to date was at Esperance, with 18mm in the past two weeks.

This time last year Esperance had recorded 20.8mm before the season break on May 25.
