Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 4:30 pm EDT on Sunday 29 January 2023.

Weather Situation

A humid airmass is interacting with a trough over western New South Wales to produce widespread rain and thunderstorms. This trough is expected to deepen and slowly move towards central parts of the state on Monday and then reach the northeast by Wednesday. Although a low pressure system may develop offshore within this trough on Tuesday, it is forecast to move away and weaken on Wednesday. A cold front will arrive at the end of the week, bringing significantly cooler, drier and possibly windy weather.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 57.0 mm at Chillingham.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from 8.0 degrees at Perisher Valley Obs to 33.0 degrees at Borrona Downs.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 14.6 degrees at Mount Ginini to 41.6 degrees at Brewon.

A very humid day across New South Wales today. A band of rain covered the southern half throughout the day and afternoon showers and thunderstorms developed about the central eastern ranges and northern ranges in the afternoon. Severe thunderstorms were reported from the northwestern outskirts of Sydney.

Minimum temperatures were mostly 3 to 7 degrees above average.

Maximum temperatures were 4 to 8 degrees below average over the southern half where rain-affected and were 2 to 4 degrees above average elsewhere.

Winds generally light to moderate northwest to northeasterly, tending southwest to southeasterly in the far southwest.
