Forecast issued at 5:15 am EST on Saturday 27 August 2016.
A low pressure trough lies across the central New South Wales coast while a high pressure system centred over the far west extends a ridge across most of the state. As the high pressure system moves further east over New South Wales on Saturday, the coastal trough will weaken and slip eastwards over the Tasman Sea, allowing the high pressure system to become the dominant weather feature from Sunday into the new week.
