Suppose to be camping just out of Sydney this weekend so of course this rain will hang around until this time next week. So much BOM seasonal outlook as far as nsw coast is concerned: Climate outlook overview Autumn (March to May) rainfall is likely to be below average over the southern two-thirds of Australia. March is likely to be hotter and drier than average across most of Australia, except the far north and west. Ah huh! Guessing the last 3 weeks doesn't fall into this season. Dont get me wrong, Im a n/w nsw country girl and the rain hitting the other side of the range is great. Just in Sydney, starting to get a bit over it. Especially when looking forward to camping/ bush walking and swimming this weekend.
