Weather Situation

A slow moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea will promote the build up of heat over inland New South Wales, leading to heatwave conditions for many districts over the coming days. Meanwhile, a trough will bring a brief southerly change to northern coastal parts today. Another, more significant, trough associated with a cold front is forecast to slowly move across western and southern districts during Thursday and Friday but stall and weaken before reaching the northeast on Friday afternoon.

Hot and sunny. Winds east to northeasterly 15 to 20 km/h becoming light in the morning then becoming east to northeasterly 15 to 25 km/h in the late evening. Daytime maximum temperatures 35 to 40.
