Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 4:32 pm EST on Wednesday 29 June 2022.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge across the north of the state while a weakening trough will cross the west and south overnight and during Thursday. After this, a new high is expected to strengthen south of the Bight while a trough develops along the New South Wales coast. This pattern looks set to bring showers to the eastern half of the state during the weekend and into next week, with the potential for significant rain in some coastal areas.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 12.8 mm at Byron Bay.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from -5.8 degrees at Cooma Airport to 15.2 degrees at Lord Howe Island.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 2.8 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 20.3 degrees at Grafton Airport.

High cloud thickened during the day, while a few isolated showes were observed in the far northeast. Widespread morning frosts were observed about the ranges and western slopes.

Minimum temperatures were mostly below average due to light wind and mostly clear skies overnight. Over much of the inland minimums were 4 to 6 degrees below the longterm average.

Maximum temperatures were generally near average though temperatures were about 4 degrees below average in the far west.

Winds were generally light to moderate northeast to northwesterly.
