On Sunday the low will move east and weaken as a high pressure system moves south of the Bight extending a ridge to New South Wales north coast. The coastal ridge will strengthen during Monday and Tuesday and a low pressure trough will develop over the northeastern inland. The high is expected to be position east of Tasmania on Friday maintaining the ridge to the north.

The overnight minimum temperature range was from 1 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 22 degrees at Byron Bay.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 14 degrees at Mount Ginini to 35 degrees at Casino.
