Snowy Mountains Forecast

No warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:31 pm EDT on Friday 28 November 2014.

Weather Situation

A high centred to the west of Bass Strait extends a ridge over eastern New South Wales, with a second high pressure centre developing off the southern coast. This new high will strengthen and move to the central Tasman Sea over the next day or two, helping direct warmer and increasingly humid air from the tropics over New South Wales. Meanwhile a broad low pressure trough in the state's west should remain slow-moving throughout the forecast period, leading to an unsettled period of showers and thunderstorms across most districts from Sunday onwards.

Forecast for the rest of Friday

Mostly clear. Winds west to southwesterly 15 to 20 km/h shifting east to northeasterly in the evening.

Saturday 29 November

Partly cloudy. Light winds becoming west to northwesterly 15 to 20 km/h in the morning then shifting east to northeasterly in the afternoon.
