Winter is little more than a week away and the weather looks set to reflect it this weekend with cold temperatures, strong winds and a day of heavy rain in store.
Friday should be mostly sunny along the coast but strong west to south-westerly winds will keep the temperature relatively low, with 8-19 expected.
Inland will be even cooler, with possible showers predicted and temperatures ranging from just 9-15.

Saturday will be the warmest day of the weekend, although it will also have the coldest daytime low, with temperatures set to range from 7-21 on the coast and 9-16 inland. Strong westerly winds will again be a feature and there is the chance of 1-10mm of rain across the Great Lakes.
Sunday could quite possibly see heavy rain across the region, with 10-20mm predicted on the coast and up to 40mm forecast inland. The temperature is expected to range from 9-19 on the coast and 10-14 closer to the ranges. Strong sou-westers should prevail throughout the day.
There is a strong wind warning and hazardous surf warning current for the Mid North Coast.
