Australian Capital Territory Forecast

No warnings for the Australian Capital Territory

Forecast issued at 5:15 am EST on Friday 29 July 2016.

Weather Situation

A high over eastern South Australia is extending a ridge into New South Wales. This high will be the dominant synoptic feature in the region during the next few days, moving slowly across southeast Australia and blocking the progress of any approaching fronts. The stability of this system should promote fine weather and increasing daytime temperatures in most districts, although mornings will remain cool. Later on the weekend the high is forecast to weaken as it nears the Tasman Sea, allowing the next significant cold front to move through New South Wales early in the new week.

Forecast for the rest of Friday

Partly cloudy. Medium (40%) chance of a shower on the ranges. Snow possible above 1700 metres. Winds westerly 20 to 30 km/h. Daytime maximum temperatures between 8 and 12.

Sun protection 11:10am to 1:20pm, UV Index predicted to reach 3 [Moderate]
