View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 5:16 am EDT on Friday 30 January 2015.

Weather Situation

A low pressure centre is deepening within a trough over the Tasman Sea, while a high lies to the southwest of Tasmania. The low is expected to shift southwest towards Tasmania then remain very slow-moving through the next few days as the high passes to its south. This pattern will maintain generally dry southerly winds over most of New South Wales, with any shower activity restricted to parts of the east. During the weekend the low is forecast to gradually weaken and move away to the east, with a new high south of the Bight building a ridge along the New South Wales coast.

Forecast for the rest of Friday

Cloudy. Medium (50%) chance of showers in the south, slight (30%) chance elsewhere. Winds southwesterly 25 to 35 km/h.
