View the current warnings for the Australian Capital Territory and NSW

Forecast issued at 5:15 am EST on Saturday 4 July 2020.

Weather Situation

A trough located over northeast NSW will move offshore during Saturday morning. A cold front, which moved across southern parts of the state overnight, will continue to make its way across the state today, bringing significantly cooler conditions. As these fronts move away to the east over the weekend, a new high pressure system will gradually approach from the west and extend a ridge across the state. This high looks set to become the dominant feature in the region through the coming week.
