A broad low pressure trough lies across western New South Wales and it will move to the northeast during today and Wednesday and weaken. A cold front will cross the state on Thursday but no significant precipitation is expected as dry air masses lie over southeastern Australia.

The overnight minimum temperature range was from 5 degrees at Thredbo Village to 26 degrees at Bourke.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 16 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 42 degrees at Bourke.
Today was a mostly fine and sunny day across NSW, with cloudy conditions persisting along the coast where light showers were felt during the day.
Minimum temperatures were below average in the Hunter and Metropolitan, tending average in the Central Tablelands, Southern Tablelands, Northern Rivers and South Coast, and above average across the rest of the state.
Maximum temperatures were broadly above average over the state, with Northern Rivers, South Coast and Mid-North Coast being the only districts meeting their average temperatures for March.
Winds were moderate to fresh north to northeasterly along the coast, tending southerly to southeasterly in the South Coast and the Illawarra, northeasterly along the ranges and generally light across inland NSW and the occasional moderate gust.
