Weather Situation

A strong slow-moving high centred over South Australia extends a ridge across New South Wales. An upper level trough moving through the northeast of the state is expected to reach the Tasman Sea tonight. A strong cold front approaching Tasmania is expected to bring a cold southwest change to New South Wales on Thursday with showers or snow mainly about the southern ranges and southwest slopes. The high should then move over the state on Friday with dry settled conditions likely to persist for several days under its influence.
