Australian Alps: Snowy Mountains Forecast

View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:30 pm EDT on Monday 27 January 2020.

Weather Situation

A trough of low pressure extends from western Queensland into inland New South Wales, while a weak ridge extends across the state's south. Over the next few days, this trough will gradually weaken while the high moves slowly eastwards and strengthens. This will lead to the humid and unsettled weather in districts east of the trough forecast to ease into the middle of the week. Towards the end of the week, the high pressure ridge will become well-established over the Tasman Sea, bringing increased temperatures across New South Wales.
