Weather Situation

A cold front is crossing southern and western New South Wales coast today, and will continue to the northeast during Friday. A second front is expected later Friday and Saturday, bringing significantly cooler conditions. As these fronts move away to the east over the weekend, a new high pressure system will gradually approach from the west and extend a ridge across New South Wales. This high looks set to become the dominant feature in the region through the coming week.
