This front will bring a cooler change to southern and central districts during Monday, although conditions will remain very warm across the north until the change arrives early Tuesday. Also on Tuesday, a low pressure system is expected to develop off the New South Wales coast, likely bringing showers to many eastern areas. This low should weaken during Wednesday and Thursday as a strong high develops over the southern Tasman Sea. Another changes looks set to affect New South Wales on the weekend.
