Weather Situation

A strong cold front is moving over eastern New South Wales today, accompanied by gusty winds and bringing showers to the southern inland. Conditions will ease through the weekend as a high pressure system to the west strengthens and drifts closer. The stabilising effect of this system will promote fine conditions in most areas, although some very cold nights are expected. The high is expected to be the dominant feature in the region through the first half of next week.
