Forecast issued at 4:31 pm EDT on Tuesday 10 December 2013.
A trough stalls over the far northeast of the state over the next few days, while a broad area of low pressure over the Southern Ocean sees a series of frontal systems brush south of NSW. A high pressure ridge balances between these two systems and extends over central NSW resulting in fine weather over inland NSW for the outlook period.
