WEATHER: Perfect one day, rainy and windy the next

WE KNOW what you're all thinking.

Yesterday was one of those perfect autumn days - clear blue skies, sunshine and a hit of cooler weather in the evening, and today looks set to be the same.

So will it stay that way for the weekend?

The short answer is no.

Apologies to all the mums out there hoping for an outdoor picnic with the family on Mother's Day.

Weatherzone says widespread rainfall is expected to impact NSW from Saturday as two systems interact with one another from the north and west.

"The scenario is set to lead to widespread rainfall and cooling, with the added risk of thunderstorms and very gusty winds over the state," the forecast states.

"Most of the eastern half of New South Wales is forecast to receive 10-to-20mm on Sunday, with places in the northern and southern interior receiving upwards of 20mm.

"Looking further ahead, from next Tuesday it appears likely that conditions over the state will become more settled for a couple of days under a high pressure system, as skies clear up somewhat."
