Heavy rain hits Sydney commuters on Thursday morning. Photo: Nick MoirSydney is over the worst of the miserable weather that has blanketed the city with early-morning fog and showers for several days, with conditions set to clear this afternoon.
Rain hampered Thursday morning's commute, but Sydneysiders can look forward to clearer conditions over the next five days, Weatherzone meteorologist Rob Sharpe said.
"It's going the best weekend in Sydney for three weeks," Mr Sharpe said.
The rain will subside to the occasional shower by late Thursday morning, with cloudy conditions easing throughout the day as winds turn more southerly.
The weekend will be sunny and dry for most Sydneysiders, with only the odd light shower near the coastal fringe expected, bringing less than 5 millimetres of rain.
Saturday is expected to reach 19 degrees, before climbing to 21 degrees, with "mostly sunny skies" on Sunday.
"Despite the chance of showers lingering, I think we're going to be quite surprised how nice the weekend is going to be," Mr Sharpe said.
Balmy weather is expected for the first day of spring, with Monday set to be clear and mostly sunny, reaching a top of 24 degrees.
But the five-day respite is set to break early next week, as a cold front takes hold. Rain will begin developing later into Monday evening with the front expected to hit Sydney on Tuesday, bringing a few showers.
The fluctuating conditions, which will lead to a top of 22 degrees on Tuesday before dipping to 19 degrees on Wednesday, is "quite a standard start to spring", Mr Sharpe said.
"During spring, the temp often fluctuates quite a bit as we see the warmth coming in from central Australia before being replaced by cold air from the south with the movement of a cold front."
