This frontal system will bring rain to the state's south and west today, shifting through central areas and into the northeast during Friday, followed by a cooler southerly change. Behind this, a new high in the Bight will extend a ridge into New South Wales during the weekend, though a trough may linger over the northern inland for a day or two.
