Forecast issued at 4:30 pm EST on Friday 16 April 2021.

Weather Situation

A ridge of high pressure extends across the New South Wales interior, while a trough lingers over northeastern parts. This trough is expected to deepen during Saturday, leading to widespread showers, areas of rain and isolated thunderstorms in the northeast. From Sunday, a new high will ridge over the state, interrupted briefly by a series of cold fronts passing to the south. This should allow stable conditions to develop across much of the region into the new week, except a few showers about the far south.

Partly cloudy. Slight (20%) chance of a shower in the south, most likely later tonight. Near zero chance of rain elsewhere. Winds east to southeasterly 15 to 20 km/h.
