South West Slopes Forecast

View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:30 pm EST on Sunday 11 April 2021.

Weather Situation

A cool southwesterly airstream has developed in the wake of a strong cold front which passed over the state overnight. A strong high pressure system will drift across southeast Australia over the coming days, reaching the Tasman Sea by Tuesday. This pattern will promote mostly dry weather, although mornings are expected to be quite cool. The next trough looks set to affect the region in the middle of the week, though conditions will be mostly influenced by a high pressure ridge toward the weekend.

Forecast for the rest of Sunday

Partly cloudy. Slight (20%) chance of a shower about the ranges, becoming less likely later tonight. Near zero chance of rain elsewhere. Snow possible above 1300 metres. Winds southwesterly 25 to 35 km/h decreasing to 15 to 25 km/h in the evening.

Monday 12 April
