Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 4:41 pm EST on Saturday 19 April 2014.

Weather Situation

A decaying cold front is moving along the northern New South Wales coast this morning, while a high pressure system near Adelaide extends a ridge into the state's west. This ridge will remain the dominant feature in the region through the next few days, briefly interrupted by a fairly weak trough moving through on Sunday. The extended outlook suggests the next frontal system is likely mid-week, but very little rainfall is expected due to the generally dry state of the atmosphere.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 3 mm at Perisher Valley.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from -7 degrees at Charlotte Pass to 18 degrees at Smoky Cape.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 7 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 28 degrees at Collarenebri.

A high pressure ridge over the state has brought mostly sunny conditions today.

Minimum temperatures were average or below average across the state.

Maximum temperatures were close to average or slightly below average with maximums in the hunter slightly warmer than average.

Winds were light south to southwesterly across most of NSW, tending light and southeasterly for coastal parts in the afternoon.
