Forecast issued at 5:15 am EDT on Saturday 29 October 2016.

Weather Situation

A slow moving low pressure trough lies over central and northern inland parts of the state, while a high pressure system lies over the southwest Tasman Sea. These two systems will generate showers and thunderstorms over eastern parts of the state today. On Sunday the trough will become mobile and move east as a rain band and associated cold front moves across the state from the west. After the front clears on Monday, a ridge of high pressure will become established across southeast Australia.

Forecast for the rest of Saturday

Partly cloudy. Slight (20%) chance of a shower in the east during this afternoon and early evening. Near zero chance of rain elsewhere. Light winds becoming north to northeasterly 20 to 30 km/h in the middle of the day.
