Weather Situation

A broad area of low pressure lies over the western Tasman Sea and will linger for the next day or two, bringing showery conditions to coastal parts. Meanwhile, warm conditions look set to develop over inland areas on Thursday, as another weak trough enters the state's far west. This trough is forecast to move east at the end of the week, as a cold front approaches, then crosses the state and deepens during the weekend.
