Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 4:46 pm EST on Wednesday 14 April 2021.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea will move east during the next couple of days, maintaining a ridge over northeastern New South Wales. Meanwhile, a cold front and associated trough are expected to cross southern parts of the state today, generating windy conditions across the southeast. This will be followed by the passage of another cold front on Friday. A new high will move over the Bight in the wake of this second front on Saturday, and then move eastwards across the state early next week.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 1.5 mm at Regatta Point.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from -1.7 degrees at Glen Innes Airport to 19.1 degrees at Norfolk Island.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 4.1 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 30.7 degrees at Delta.

Windy conditions prevailed over the Alps, Monaro Alpine and Southern Tablelands this morning and early afternoon as a front crossed the southern and western parts of the state today. Thredbo Top station recorded the highest wind gust 122 km/h at around 2 am this morning. Both Perisher AWS and Bombala recorded peak gust 78 km/h. The cloud band associated with the front brought some light rainfall at some parts of the southern ranges and far southern coast but only light falls were observed from this cloud band.

Minimum temperatures were below average in the northeast, but remained above average in the south and west due to the overnight breezes.

Maximum temperatures were generally above average in many areas due to the west northwesterly winds ahead of the front, but remained below average in far southern ranges.

Winds were generally moderate to fresh northwest to southwest winds, tending fresh to strong about higher grounds in the southeast.
