Weather Situation

A ridge of high pressure across northern New South Wales is weakening, while a series of cold fronts are moving across the Southern Ocean towards southeast Australia. This pattern is expected to generate gusty winds over southern and central parts of the state from Tuesday onwards, although the airstream is expected to be too dry for any widespread precipitation. A stronger cold front is forecast to bring a significant cold snap at the end of the week, after which conditions should gradually ease as the next high pressure system becomes established.
