Snowy Mountains Forecast

View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 5:15 am EST on Thursday 2 October 2014.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system south of the Bight is extending a ridge into western New South Wales in the wake of a cold front, and will gradually drift east during the next few days and promote fine weather. During Friday a trough is forecast to affect central and northern parts of the coast as another cold front passes to the south, although very little rainfall is expected. By Saturday, the high is forecast to be over the Tasman Sea, with the resultant northerly winds bringing a return to hot weather in many districts.
