Forecast issued at 5:15 am EST on Tuesday 28 June 2022.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system is drifting across southeast Australia, promoting fine weather across most of New South Wales. This high will weaken and move into the Tasman Sea on Wednesday, allowing a feeble trough to pass. A new high is forecast to strengthen south of the Bight during the latter part of the week then extend a ridge across the southern Tasman Sea. This pattern, in conjunction with a developing upper-level system, looks set to drive showers onto the coast during the weekend. There is potential for significant rain in some areas during the following few days, depending on the evolution of a trough in the region, with current computer models quite varied in their prognoses.

Forecast for the rest of Tuesday

Mostly sunny. Areas of morning frost. Light winds becoming east to southeasterly 15 to 20 km/h in the early afternoon then becoming light in the late afternoon. Daytime maximum temperatures between 10 and 15.

Sun protection 12:00pm to 1:00pm, UV Index predicted to reach 3 [Moderate]
