Forecast issued at 5:15 am EDT on Monday 18 November 2019.

Weather Situation

A couple of weak troughs, along with a high pressure system, will move through eastern and southern parts of New South Wales early this week. A more dominant high will then move east across Tasmania on Tuesday and become established over the Tasman Sea by Wednesday. This blocking system will promote the build up of heat over inland New South Wales during the second half of the week, leading to heatwave conditions for many districts.

Forecast for the rest of Monday

Sunny. Light winds. Daytime maximum temperatures around 30.

Central Ranges: Very High
North Western: Very High
