Forecast issued at 4:30 pm EST on Friday 28 August 2015.

Weather Situation

A complex low pressure system off the southern New South Wales coast is moving slowly east, while a high south of the Bight extends a ridge into the state's west. This ridge will remain over much of the state during the following few days, promoting cool mornings and fine conditions over most inland districts, while coastal parts may see the odd shower or two. There are signs that a broad low pressure system may affect the region mid next week.
