Weather Situation

A cold front and strong west to southwesterly change will cross western and southern NSW today, reaching central parts this evening. The front is expected to weaken as it moves into the northeast Wednesday morning. Just a few showers are expected near the Victorian border with this change but it will result in strong winds over southern districts today and a cooler, drier airmass to all districts bar the far northeast by tomorrow morning. For the remainder of the week a deep low pressure system is expected to move slowly south of Tasmania while a high pressure ridge develops across northern NSW, leading to a cool, stable southwesterly airflow over NSW.

Forecast for the rest of Tuesday

Patchy fog about higher ground early this morning then a warm, sunny day. Winds northwesterly 25 to 35 km/h increasing to 35 to 45 km/h in the middle of the day then turning cooler westerly 35 to 50 km/h in the evening. Daytime maximum temperatures in the low to mid 20s.
