Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 7:53 pm EDT on Sunday 23 November 2014.

Weather Situation

A broad low pressure trough preceded by hot west to northwesterly winds is moving across southwestern New South Wales, bringing unsettled conditions to most districts and it will weaken and stall over the northeast of the state Sunday night. On Monday a stronger cold front with milder southerly winds behind will move through the west and southeast of the state during the day before weakening into a trough over the far northeast on Tuesday. Behind the front a high pressure system will move very slowly towards Tasmania strengthening a ridge throughout the state and generally stabilising conditions particularly over the inland. This high is expected to move over the southwestern Tasman Sea during Friday.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 6 mm at Lake Victoria.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from 10 degrees at Thredbo Village to 31 degrees at Tibooburra.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 21 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 46 degrees at Walgett Airport.

Today was a fine, hot and mostly sunny day across NSW. Thunderstorms were observed in the northeast of the state during the afternoon.

Minimum and maximum temperatures were above to well above average across the state.

Winds were light to moderate seabreezes along the coastal fringe, tending moderate west to northwesterlies across inland NSW. About the northeast of the state, winds were moderate northerlies.
