Forecast issued at 4:31 pm EST on Wednesday 16 April 2014.

Weather Situation

Ex-tropical cyclone Ita currently over the northern Tasman Sea is expected to move to the southeast deepening rapidly as a high pressure system southeast of Tasmania extends a ridge over NSW. The ridge will dominate the weather over NSW before a cold front crosses the far southern parts of the state on Friday. Another high pressure system is expected to move over NSW from the west over the weekend, promoting fine, cool conditions.

Forecast for the rest of Wednesday

Partly cloudy. Winds south to southwesterly and light.
