Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT
Issued at 4:30 pm EST on Tuesday 29 July 2014.
A ridge of high pressure lies across northern New South Wales, while a series of cold fronts are moving from the Southern Ocean across southeast Australia. The passing of these fronts is generating gusty winds over southern and central parts of the state, but little rainfall due to the presence of a generally dry airmass. A stronger cold front is forecast to bring a significant cold snap at the end of the week, after which conditions should gradually ease as the next high pressure system becomes established.
Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 1 mm at Henty.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from -7 degrees at Glen Innes Airport to 14 degrees at Kiama.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 0 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 26 degrees at Wilcannia.
A band of high cloud moved across the Metropolitan and Central Tablelands during the morning, with skies becoming sunny during the afternoon. The rest of the state remained sunny today.
Overnight, minimum temperatures were mostly above average across the state, with temperatures tending below average in the Northern Rivers, Mid-North Coast, Northern Tablelands and Northwest Slopes & Plains.
Maximum temperatures today were above to well above average across the state.
Winds were fresh to strong west to northwesterlies across much of central and southern NSW, with winds easing to moderate strength in the northeast. About the Northern Rivers light east to northeasterlies developed during the afternoon.
