Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 4:32 pm EST on Tuesday 30 September 2014.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge into New South Wales, promoting fine conditions in most districts. A cold front will pass through the southwest later today, reaching the southeast overnight and the remainder during Wednesday. It is preceded by windy and warm to hot conditions but bringing little or no rain apart from showers about the southern ranges. After this, another high is forecast to strengthen over the Bight and to push a new ridge across the state, resulting in a continuation of generally fine weather through the rest of the week.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 0.2 mm at Narooma.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from 1 degrees at Cooma to 19 degrees at Springwood.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 7 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 37 degrees at Brewarrina.

Today was a fine, dry and generally sunny day across NSW. A little cloud was present across central districts during the day.

Today, maximum and minimum temperatures were above to well above average across the state.

Winds were moderate to fresh, strong at times about elevated ground, west to northwesterlies across much of the state. Winds tended more westerly in the far west of the state. Along the coast, winds were north to northwesterly, with seabreezes being kept at bay apart from the far South Coast.
