Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 4:30 pm EST on Sunday 24 September 2023.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system has now entered the Tasman Sea with a ridge to the north coast. The positioning of this system is drawing increasingly warm air into the state. A trough expected to develop over southern and western parts early next week and generate some unsettled weather, before the next cool change arrives mid-week.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 4.0 mm at Baerami (The Old Dairy).
The overnight minimum temperature range was from -2.5 degrees at Perisher Valley Obs to 19.9 degrees at Borrona Downs.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 13.0 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 34.4 degrees at Smithville.

A few showers affected northeastern coastal areas during the morning. Elsewhere, it has been dry with mostly clear skies.

Minimum temperatures were generally near to below average about the ranges and slopes. Temperatures were 4 to 6 degrees above average in the far northwest.

Maximum temperatures this afternoon were near average to a few degrees below average along the coast, shifting to 4 to 8 degrees above average into the states west and in parts of the south.

Winds were light east to notheasterly.
