Australian Capital Territory Forecast

No warnings for the Australian Capital Territory

Forecast issued at 5:15 am EST on Saturday 19 April 2014.

Weather Situation

A decaying cold front is moving along the northern New South Wales coast this morning, while a high pressure system near Adelaide extends a ridge into the state's west. This ridge will remain the dominant feature in the region through the next few days, briefly interrupted by a fairly weak trough moving through on Sunday. The extended outlook suggests the next frontal system is likely mid-week, but very little rainfall is expected due to the generally dry state of the atmosphere.

Forecast for the rest of Saturday

Patchy fog early this morning. Sunny afternoon. Winds west to southwesterly 15 to 20 km/h becoming light in the morning. Daytime maximum temperatures between 12 and 17.

Fire Danger - Australian Capital Territory: Low-Moderate

UV Alert from 9:40 am to 2:20 pm, UV Index predicted to reach 5 [Moderate]
