A generally fine and sunny day across the northern half and the southeastern quarter of NSW, tending cloudy over the Southwestern Slopes and Riverina, with some slight showers in the far southwestern slopes near Victorian border.

Minimum temperatures were generally average or slightly below average with clear sky and radiation cooling, tending above average in the Riverina, Southwest Slopes and Central West Slopes & Plains due to the cloud cover.

Maximum temperatures were generally average to slightly above average across eastern NSW, especially in the far west and the tablelands.
