Weather Situation

A ridge of high pressure extends into New South Wales from a high to the east of Tasmania. This high will move over the southwestern Tasman Sea during Wednesday strengthening the ridge to the north. A low pressure trough is expected to move over the southwest of the state during Thursday, and into the east of the state on Friday, as the high weakens. A following front is expected to move through most of the state on Saturday.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 9 mm at Mount Boyce.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from -1 degrees at Perisher Valley to 22 degrees at Tibooburra Airport.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 9 degrees at Mount Ginini to 38 degrees at Broken Hill.

Onshore flow in the east brought overcast skies to the coast and ranges, with drizzle and showers on the Central Tablelands and Northern Rivers. West of the ranges, skies were generally clear with some high cloud entering the far west of the state during the afternoon. A little patchy cloud developed in the northwest of the state around Wanaaring.

Minimum temperatures overnight were above average across the state.

Maximum temperatures were below average along the coast and ranges, tending above average across inland NSW.

Winds were onshore along the coast; southeasterly in the north and northeasterly in the south. Across inland NSW winds were light to moderate east to northeasterlies.
