Australian Capital Territory Forecast

No warnings for the Australian Capital Territory

Forecast issued at 5:15 am EST on Saturday 30 July 2016.

Weather Situation

A high extends from South Australia across 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 cold. Late on the weekend the high is forecast to weaken, allowing the next significant cold front to move through New South Wales early in the new week.

Forecast for the rest of Saturday

Partly cloudy. Fog and areas of frost this morning. Light winds becoming northwesterly 15 to 20 km/h in the late evening. Daytime maximum temperatures between 10 and 14.

Sun protection 10:50am to 1:40pm, UV Index predicted to reach 3 [Moderate]
