Weather Situation

A high pressure system over eastern New South Wales is promoting fine weather in the region today, while a trough develops in central Australia. During Monday the trough will approach the western border as the high shifts to the Tasman Sea, directing warmer northerly winds across the region. Most districts are expected to see some rain from this trough as it moves across the state during Tuesday and Wednesday. A second trough is forecast to deepen over New South Wales and Queensland towards the end of the week, with potential to bringing further rain to some areas.
