Australian Capital Territory Forecast

No warnings for the Australian Capital Territory

Forecast issued at 5:16 am EST on Friday 19 September 2014.

Weather Situation

A complex low pressure system is situated over the eastern Tasman Sea, while a high is centred to the south of Adelaide. This high will be the dominant feature in the region during the next few days as it drifts slowly east, reaching the Tasman Sea early in the new week while maintaining a ridge across much of New South Wales. The presence of some cool upper-level air over the state's northeast should support some shower and thunderstorm activity along the north coast through to Sunday, and the development of an upper low over southwest Queensland later on the weekend may lead to some unsettled weather across the northern inland.

Forecast for the rest of Friday

Early frosts, and local fog patches. Mostly sunny afternoon. Light winds. Daytime maximum temperatures between 11 and 17.

UV Alert from 9:30 am to 2:20 pm, UV Index predicted to reach 5 [Moderate]
