View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 5:15 am EST on Sunday 29 May 2016.

Weather Situation

A strengthening high pressure system near the western border of New South Wales is drifting slowly east. The presence of this high will promote generally fine weather over the next day or two, although mornings will be very cool. Another high is expected to develop over the southern Tasman Sea early in the new week, generating a showery onshore airstream by mid-week, while a weak trough may also create unsettled conditions in the state's west. The next significant change is not expected until the end of the week.

Forecast for the rest of Sunday

Mostly sunny. Light winds becoming southwesterly 15 to 20 km/h in the middle of the day. Daytime maximum temperatures between 14 and 19.
