Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT
Issued at 4:34 pm EST on Wednesday 30 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 16 mm at Perisher Valley.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from -6 degrees at Glen Innes Airport to 16 degrees at Montague Island.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 2 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 26 degrees at Kempsey.
A generally sunny day across NSW today, with some cloud about the Southwest Slopes and eastern Riverina where shower activity was recorded. The highest rainfall totals were observed in the Snowy Mountains.
Overnight, minimum temperatures were mostly above average across the state, with temperatures tending below average in the Northern Rivers 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 NSW, with winds easing in the northeast and tending occasional light to moderate east to northeasterlies along the coastal fringe of the Northern Rivers.
