North West Slopes and Plains Forecast

View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 5:17 am EST on Saturday 19 April 2014.

Weather Situation

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.

Forecast for the rest of Saturday

Patchy fog early this morning. Mostly sunny afternoon. Light winds becoming south to southwesterly 15 to 20 km/h in the morning. Daytime maximum temperatures 22 to 27.

Fire Danger
New England: Low-Moderate
Northern Slopes: High
North Western: High

UV Alert from 9:20 am to 2:40 pm, UV Index predicted to reach 6 [High]
