Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 4:35 pm EDT on Monday 17 February 2020.

Weather Situation

A low pressure trough will remain over inland New South Wales for much of the coming week, bringing unsettled weather to the eastern half of the state. This is forecast to be more active in eastern parts during the rest of today and throughout Wednesday as a cold front crosses southeast Australia and deepens to a low over the southwestern Tasman Sea. This low is expected to move rapidly east, pushed away from the New South Wales coast by a ridge of high pressure extending across southern New South Wales behind the cold front.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 77.0 mm at Bukkulla (Rfs).
The overnight minimum temperature range was from 8 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 28 degrees at Brewarrina.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 17 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 43 degrees at Bourke.

A few showers and the chance of thunderstorms over the eastern half, more likely on the northern ranges and about parts of the Central West. Some thunderstorms may become severe about parts of the central and northern inland. Dry and mostly sunny over the western half. Hot across the northern inland. Daytime temperatures below average in the east and Central West, tending above average elsewhere. Southeast to northeast winds.
