Weather Situation

A high pressure system near Tasmania is extending a ridge into southern New South Wales tonight, while a trough over the state's northeast stalls and weakens. Over the coming days the high will move slowly east, reaching the southern Tasman Sea by Friday, as another trough deepens over the west. This pattern will result in showers and generally mild temperatures in the east and south, with warm and unstable conditions over the north and west. During the weekend, the trough is forecast to move into eastern parts of the state, followed by a cold front early in the new week.
