Forecast issued at 5:15 am EDT on Friday 27 November 2015.
A cold front brought cooler conditions to most of New South Wales yesterday, and will extend through to the Queensland border this morning. Behind the front, a ridge is developing across southern and central parts of the state, with a new high pressure centre expected to form over the Tasman Sea during Friday. A weak trough is forecast to cross the state later on the weekend, but is unlikely to bring any significant weather.
