Forecast issued at 4:32 pm EDT on Friday 6 March 2015.
A high pressure system south of WA extends a ridge across western and northern New South Wales, while a cold front clips the state's corner. During the weekend a high is expected to become established over the Tasman Sea while a weak trough lingers over northeast New South Wales. This pattern should bring a return to more humid conditions for parts of the north and east, but is unlikely to generate any significant rainfall during the forecast period.
