THE arrival of autumn was signalled by chilly winds and heavy rain throughout most of NSW and the weather bureau has warned there is no sunshine in sight.
Flights were delayed at Sydney Airport for most of Friday and further delays are expected on the weekend.
Late Thursday, the balmy temperatures dropped by more than 10 degrees in Sydney and the south coast and by Friday night, the temperature had barely tipped 20 degrees in most parts of the state.
Showers are expected around Sydney on the weekend while a rain band will move across northern NSW.
The heavier falls are expected in flood affected areas on the Mid North Coast and Northern Rivers including Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie and Grafton.
A severe weather warning for those districts was cancelled on Friday night but the bureau warned there was still potential for local flash flooding and power outages.
