Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 4:30 pm EDT on Sunday 29 November 2015.

Weather Situation

A weak low pressure trough lies over far northeastern New South Wales while a high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is extending a ridge across the south and along the coast. The trough will weaken by Monday and a cold front/trough system is expected to cross the state during Tuesday and Wednesday.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 51 mm at Grafton Airport.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from 5 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 23 degrees at Ballina.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 11 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 36 degrees at Moree.

A moist easterly flow along the coast of New South Wales meant cloudy conditions as well as showers and thunderstorms for most coastal regions and on the Northern ranges, while the remainder of the state was mostly sunny and dry. The southern inland of the state also had some very isolated shower activity originating from passing middle level cloud band, with little precipitation reaching the ground.

Minimum temperatures were around 3 to 4 degrees above average through the eastern half of the state, while the remainder was slightly cooler than usual or close to average.

Maximum temperatures were generally 2 to 3 degrees above average, with cooler conditions in Riverina which was slightly below average.

Winds were light to moderate west to southwesterlies across inland districts and about the slopes, tending moderate fresh east to northeasterly along the coast. A moderate southerly change has appeared on the far South Coast in the afternoon.
