Forecast issued at 5:17 am EST on Saturday 19 April 2014.
A decaying cold front is moving along the northern New South Wales coast this morning, while a high pressure system near Adelaide extends a ridge into the state's west. This ridge will remain the dominant feature in the region through the next few days, briefly interrupted by a fairly weak trough moving through on Sunday. The extended outlook suggests the next frontal system is likely mid-week, but very little rainfall is expected due to the generally dry state of the atmosphere.
