Weather Situation

A weak ridge of high pressure over southeast Australia is promoting generally fine weather through New South Wales today.

A high pressure system developing over the Southern Ocean mid-week is expected to extend a ridge across New South Wales from Wednesday, bringing a return to dry weather in most districts.
