Storms were forecast for both Saturday and Sunday. In the 24 hours to 9am Sunday, there was 31 millimetres recorded at Bathurst Agricultural Station.
Bathurst SES media officer Kevin Ng said crews attended to a leaking roof on Saturday night, and then responded to a further six jobs on Sunday morning.
The majority of the jobs were fallen trees.
"We've had seven jobs - one roof job, mostly just trees down mostly really across driveways and blocking road corridors to Blayney and a big one on boundary road," Mr Ng said.
As of early Sunday afternoon, only one crew was still out, attending to a tree that had fallen on a roof.
The weekend's rain was the first to fall for March.
It comes after a Bathurst received well above average rainfall over the 2021-22 summer.
