Forecast issued at 4:30 pm EDT on Thursday 26 November 2015.
A strong and gusty cold front has brought cooler conditions to southern New South Wales today, which will extend through to the Queensland border tonight or early Friday as the front progresses eastwards. Behind the front, a ridge is developing across southern and central parts of the state, with a new high pressure centre expected to form over the Tasman Sea during Friday. A weak trough is forecast to cross the state later on the weekend, but is unlikely to bring any significant weather.
