Forecast issued at 4:54 pm EDT on Sunday 23 November 2014.
A broad low pressure trough preceded by hot west to northwesterly winds is moving across southwestern New South Wales, bringing unsettled conditions to most districts and it will weaken and stall over the northeast of the state Sunday night. On Monday a stronger cold front with milder southerly winds behind will move through the west and southeast of the state during the day before weakening into a trough over the far northeast on Tuesday. Behind the front a high pressure system will move very slowly towards Tasmania strengthening a ridge throughout the state and generally stabilising conditions particularly over the inland. This high is expected to move over the southwestern Tasman Sea during Friday.
