Forecast issued at 5:15 am EST on Thursday 3 September 2015.

Weather Situation

A low pressure system moving over eastern New South Wales this morning is expected to deepen offshore during the day, before moving steadily away to the east overnight. Rain and showers associated with this system will contract to the coast by evening, with a high pressure ridge approaching from the west bringing more stable atmospheric conditions. This high is forecast to become established over eastern Australia during Friday and remain slow-moving through the weekend, promoting fine weather in most inland districts while coastal parts see the odd shower or two.

Cloudy. Slight (20%) chance of a shower. Winds west to southwesterly 15 to 20 km/h tending south to southwesterly 20 to 30 km/h in the morning. Daytime maximum temperatures around 17.
