Weather Situation

A strong high pressure system over New Zealand is maintaining a ridge over northern New South Wales while a cold front skims southeast Australia today, with an associated trough bringing a cooler change to the state's south. Behind this, a new high is expected to move over the Tasman Sea at the end of the week, while another trough develops over western New South Wales. This trough is likely to push through to the northeast early in the new week, but is not expected to yield significant rainfall.

Forecast for the rest of Thursday
