According to the Bureau of Meteorology a weakening high pressure system lies over New South Wales.

With a trough in western Victoria and South Australia slowly moving east, it may create isolated showers on Friday as it moves east across New South Wales.

Fine conditions will return to most of the state during Saturday, with a shower or two in the Northern Rivers as the trough clears the state and moves into the Tasman Sea.

Coastal showers will return in early next week as a new high pressure system over the Bight extends a ridge to the New South Wales Coast.
