Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 4:35 pm EDT on Monday 26 January 2015.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system south of the Bight will move gradually east-southeast over the coming days, with an associated ridge pushing along the New South Wales coast. A trough over the inland is expected to deepen today and Tuesday, before weakening mid-week as the high passes to the south of Tasmania. A weak ridge is then likely to become established over the state, with a low pressure system forecast to develop in the Tasman Sea during Thursday or Friday.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 51 mm at Casino.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from -1 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 24 degrees at Lightning Ridge.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 12 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 42 degrees at Mungindi.

Today scattered thunderstorms and showers affected northeastern parts of New South Wales, mainly ranges and slopes. Cloudy day with scattered showers or drizzle along the coast, with isolated showers north of Hunter. Mostly sunny conditions prevailed west of the Divide.

Minimum temperatures this morning were above average across most the state.

Maximum temperatures were average or slightly above it in the far north only. It was a mild day over the remainder of the State with temperatures near or below average, especially in the coastal districts in south, and adjacent tablelands.

Winds were mostly light to moderate across the State, apart from moderate to fresh seabreezes along the central and northern coasts.
