Weather Situation

A low pressure system off the southern New South Wales coast will generate windy conditions for southeastern parts of the state today. Meanwhile, another low is forecast to develop southwest of Victoria and extend a cold front over New South Wales later today. This second system will bring cool, showery weather to southern and central districts late Friday and Saturday as it moves east. A high pressure ridge is expected to strengthen from the west in the wake of the front, with a high pressure centre moving over the state by late Sunday.
