Northern Rivers Forecast

No warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 5:15 am EST on Tuesday 31 May 2016.

Weather Situation

A strengthening high pressure system near Tasmania extends a ridge into New South Wales. This high is expected to move slowly east across the Tasman Sea during the next few days. Towards the end of the week, it is likely that a low pressure system will develop over the state's northern inland and move southeast, bringing rain to most districts before the system moves out to sea during the weekend.

Forecast for the rest of Tuesday

Partly cloudy. Areas of fog early this morning. Slight (30%) chance of a shower along the coastal fringe, near zero chance elsewhere. Light winds. Daytime maximum temperatures in the low 20s.

UV Alert from 10:10 am to 1:20 pm, UV Index predicted to reach 4 [Moderate]
