On late Wednesday a front will enter the west of the state, with the wind turning moderate to fresh northerly throughout NSW by Thursday and some areas of rain extending across to the western slopes of the ranges. Snow is expected in the south above elevations of about 1500 metres. As the front moves into the Tasman Sea on Friday, the wind will turn northwesterly and showers will become restricted to the western slopes and largely clear by the end of the day. West to southwest winds and mostly dry weather expected on Saturday as a dry airstream feeds into a low developing in the southern Tasman Sea.
