Forecast issued at 4:30 pm EST on Thursday 28 July 2016.
A high over South Australia is extending a ridge into New South Wales. This high will be the dominant synoptic feature in the region during the next few days, moving slowly across southeast Australia and blocking the progress of any approaching fronts. The stability of this system should promote fine weather and increasing daytime temperatures in most districts, although mornings will remain cool. Later on the weekend the high is forecast to weaken as it nears the Tasman Sea, allowing the next significant cold front to move through New South Wales early in the new week.
