View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 5:15 am EDT on Monday 18 November 2019.

Weather Situation

A couple of weak troughs, along with a high pressure system, will move through eastern and southern parts of New South Wales early this week. A more dominant high will then move east across Tasmania on Tuesday and become established over the Tasman Sea by Wednesday. This blocking system will promote the build up of heat over inland New South Wales during the second half of the week, leading to heatwave conditions for many districts.

Forecast for the rest of Monday

Mostly sunny. Winds northwest to northeasterly 15 to 20 km/h tending east to northeasterly in the middle of the day then becoming light in the evening. Daytime maximum temperatures 24 to 30.

Fire Danger
Illawarra/Shoalhaven: Very High
