Weather Situation

A high pressure system is centred over the western Tasman Sea and is extending a ridge across New South Wales. A trough of low pressure over the north of the state, in combination with an upper level trough, is bringing unsettled weather to the northeastern half, and is expected to contract to the far northeast today. The next frontal system is expected to move through the southern parts of the state on Thursday and then stall over the Hunter Coast on Friday.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 90 mm at Concord.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from 2 degrees at Thredbo Village to 21 degrees at Lord Howe Island.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 14 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 34 degrees at Tibooburra Airport.

Dry and mostly sunny conditions inland; with some showers about the Mid-North Coast and Northern Rivers. Partly cloudy along the coast and ranges. A foggy start to the day across Sydney.

Maximum and minimum temperatures were average to slightly above average across the state, with the exception of the northeast where temperatures were slightly below average in the Northern Rivers and Mid-North Coast.

Winds were moderate northeasterlies along the coast, tending more east to northeasterly in the Northern Rivers. Across inland NSW, winds were light to moderate northerlies, tending west to northwesterly in the far west of the state.
