Temperatures for the week ahead range from 30C to 32C with clear skies.

At present, there is a zero per cent chance of rain in the state this week.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Elli Blandford told Daily Mail Australia that the weather for NSW is average for this time of year.

‘Being winter, it isn’t particularly unusual to get periods of rainfall throughout the week. 

‘In Sydney today and tomorrow we’ve got a trough sitting just offshore, which is generating those showers at the moment.

In the last 24 hours, Cronulla has experienced 44mm of rainfall. 

‘By Tuesday it is expected to head out to the Tasman Sea.’

The western parts of NSW are expected to miss out on any of the much needed rain that Sydney will see over the coming days. 

But by Tuesday a ‘very weak front may move through the very south of the state near the Victorian border,’ Ms Blandford said.

If so, it may bring with it some light shower activity.
