North West Slopes and Plains Forecast

View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 5:16 am EST on Wednesday 22 April 2015.

Weather Situation

A slow-moving low pressure system off the Hunter coast will gradually lose intensity today, and by Thursday is expected to have decayed into a broad trough over the Tasman Sea. This weakening trend will lead to improved weather conditions over eastern New South Wales. A weak ridge will extend across from the west as the low loses influence, and should linger until the weekend when the next frontal system moves across the region.

Forecast for the rest of Wednesday

Cloudy. Medium (50%) chance of showers on the southern slopes, near zero chance elsewhere. Winds southwesterly 15 to 20 km/h. Daytime maximum temperatures between 16 and 22.

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

UV Alert from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm, UV Index predicted to reach 6 [High]
