Forecast issued at 4:30 pm EDT on Monday 18 October 2021.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system lies over the Tasman Sea while a trough extends along the Queensland ranges into far northeastern New South Wales. This trough will interact with a front crossing Tasmania overnight, to develop an area of low pressure over the western Tasman Sea. This pattern will generate showery conditions along the coast for the coming days. Warm conditions look set to develop over inland areas on Thursday as another trough enters the state's far west.

Forecast for the rest of Monday

Partly cloudy. High (80%) chance of showers in the east, slight (30%) chance elsewhere. The chance of a thunderstorm, possibly severe. Light winds.

Tuesday 19 October

Partly cloudy. The chance of morning fog. Medium (60%) chance of showers, most likely in the afternoon and evening. The chance of a thunderstorm.
