Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 4:30 pm EST on Monday 21 April 2014.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system lies over New South Wales today, while a trough is situated off the coast. This high is expected to weaken today as another trough approaches from the west, which is expected to enter the state's southwest during Tuesday before stalling over central parts. The trough is expected to become mobile again on Thursday, moving to the northeast with the assistance of a cold front passing to the south. Behind this, a new ridge appears likely to become the dominant feature as it extends across from the west towards the end of the week.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 0.4 mm at Thredbo Village.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from -7 degrees at Charlotte Pass to 20 degrees at Byron Bay.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 11 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 30 degrees at Lismore Airport.

A high pressure system over New South Wales has brought mostly sunny conditions over most of the state today, apart from some high cloud in southwestern half of the state.

Minimum temperatures were generally below average across the state, while maximum temperatures were generally close to average.

Winds were generally light to moderate northwesterlies over land and east to northeasterly moderate to fresh over the coastal part of the state.
