A high pressure system lies over the Tasman Sea while a trough extends along the Queensland ranges into far northeastern New South Wales. This trough will interact with a front crossing Tasmania overnight, to develop an area of low pressure over the western Tasman Sea. This pattern will generate showery conditions along the coast for the coming days. Warm conditions look set to develop over inland areas on Thursday as another trough enters the state's far west.
