It's predicted to be a warmer and wetter than average winter ahead for the South Coast, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.
The national weather forecaster has released their winter climate outlook and expects maximum and minimum temperatures likely to be above average.
Above average rainfall is also predicted to fall from June to August for eastern Australia, but not the case for southern parts of the country.
"Our climate drivers are currently neutral, meaning we're not getting El Nino or La Nina," said Bureau Climatologist, Dr Lynette Bettio.
"Warmer ocean temperatures to the north of Australia may increase the moisture available, enhancing rainfall.
"We can expect warmer than average temperatures ... for people living closer to the coast."
It comes as New South Wales had its second wettest March on record. For autumn overall it was the coolest Australia has seen since 2015.
For those wondering about upcoming ski conditions, the Bureau won't provide a seasonal outlook due to the "notoriously fickle" snow season, but they did offer some hope on the slopes.
"Historically, neutral years have had more consistent good snow depths than either El Nino or La Nina years," the Bureau's website states.
The summer gone by saw above average rains across most of New South Wales, with overall rainfall 29 per cent above average - making it the wettest summer since 2011-12. Daytime temperatures were below average across the state, and it was the coolest summer since 2011-12.
The Bureau's climate model uses the physics of our atmosphere, oceans, ice, and land surface combined with millions of observations from satellites and on land and sea. As a result, it incorporates the influence of climate change and natural climate drivers - according to their website.
