Forecast issued at 5:15 am EDT on Wednesday 2 December 2015.
A high pressure system over the Bight extends a ridge towards western New South Wales, while a trough and associated cold front move through northeastern New South Wales, preceded by very warm conditions and unsettled weather. Following the passage of the front, the high is forecast to move across southeast Australia, with any shower activity becoming restricted to areas east of the Divide. By Friday this high should be centred over the Tasman Sea, promoting fine weather in most areas and bringing a gradual increase in temperatures heading into the weekend.
