The city’s western suburbs experienced the coldest October Day in at least 20 years on Monday as temperatures stayed below 14C in Richmond and Penrith.
Widespread rain has continued across NSW on Wednesday, with thunderstorms developing through the inland. 
Sky News Australia meteorologist Rob Sharpe says the sun will be out on Thursday before showers and thunderstorms return in the evening.
“Sydney has been blanketed in cloud and light rain from Monday to Wednesday. On Thursday we’ll see a bit of sunshine, but it’s not an invitation to head outdoors as afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms are likely, some of which may even be severe.
“Friday morning is the next best time to enjoy heading outdoors in the Harbour City, but we could see a shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon – it’s not looking as wet as Thursday. 
“Thankfully, the weekend is looking amazing in Sydney with plenty of sunshine and mild temperatures – it will be great for heading out and about.”
ACT residents can also hope for better weather as they come out of lockdown this Friday with more than 70 per cent of its eligible population double vaccinated.
“It will be cold and showery on Friday with the sun poking between the clouds on and off through the day,” Mr Sharpe says.
“During the weekend the weather will slowly improve. Still a shower or two a good chance on Saturday morning before mostly sunny weather returns on Sunday.”
Under eased restrictions in the ACT, groups of up to 25 can gather outside for recreational or organised sport.
Licensed venues can allow 25 people inside or one person per 4sqm and 50 people outside or one person per 4sqm – whichever is less.
Currently 72 per cent of eligible population fully vaccinated in the ACT
