Northern Rivers Forecast

No warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 5:15 am EST on Monday 21 April 2014.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system lies over New South Wales today, while a trough is situated off the coast. This high is expected to weaken today as another trough approaches from the west, which is expected to enter the state's southwest during Tuesday before stalling over central parts. The trough is expected to become mobile again on Thursday, moving to the northeast with the assistance of a cold front passing to the south. Behind this, a new ridge appears likely to become the dominant feature as it extends across from the west towards the end of the week.

Forecast for the rest of Monday

Early fog patches, otherwise a sunny day. Winds west to northwesterly and light tending north to northeasterly 15 to 25 km/h in the afternoon. Daytime maximum temperatures around 30.

Fire Danger - Far North Coast: High
