Weather Situation

A vigorous cold front is crossing New South Wales today, bringing a cool southwesterly change. In the wake of this front, a low pressure circulation will develop over the western Tasman Sea tonight, then move rapidly east during Thursday as a high in the Bight extends a ridge into New South Wales. This high is forecast to drift slowly east during the following few days, promoting mostly fine weather though colder mornings. The next frontal system is expected to cross the state early next week.
