The sunshine has been fabulous, but don't put your umbrellas away yet with showers and storm activity on the way this week and likely well into next month.
The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting a shower or two and possible storm for Thursday, with a top of 29 for Wollongong and 32 for Albion Park.
A marine wind warning has also been issues for the coast - from the Hunter stretching down to Eden - for Thursday.
The forecast for the Illawarra then sees temperatures hovering around the mid-20's with a shower or two every day until Tuesday.
If you had hope pinned on dry spells with glorious bouts of summer sun, your hopes may be dashed, according to the Bureau's climate outlook for rainfall.
The outlook uses climate models to predict the nation's weather patterns, with February to April "likely to be wetter than average for much of Australia".
"The fortnight 11 to 24 January is likely to be wetter than average ... in most of the country," it said on the bureau's website.
"While [La Nina] is likely near its peak strength, this does not necessarily mean its influence on rainfall has also peaked. La Nina typically increases the likelihood of above average rainfall across eastern and northern Australia during summer."
The modelling also suggests there's a 75 per cent chance 50-100mm of rain will fall across the region in February; and 300-400mm from February through to April.
Most of NSW had above average rainfall last year, with Sydney's rainfall 28 per cent above average for the year.
