Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 4:30 pm EST on Saturday 27 August 2016.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system is drifting slowly across New South Wales, while a trough off the northern coast moves away to the east. A weak cold front will clip the state's southeast during Sunday, but should have little impact on the region's weather. By Monday the high is expected to be over the Tasman Sea, drawing warmer northerly winds over southeast Australia. The next trough and associated cold front is forecast to bring rain during the second half of the week.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 35.4 mm at Wyee (Wyee Farms Rd).
The overnight minimum temperature range was from -8 degrees at Perisher Valley Obs to 14 degrees at Lord Howe Island.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from -2 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 21 degrees at Lismore Airport.

Scattered coastal showers along the northern half of NSW coast, and also afternoon showers over Northern Tablelands were observed. Otherwise the whole state was generally fine and sunny except some clouds over Southwestern Slopes and Riverina.

Maximum and minimum temperatures were both below average.

Winds were moderate west to southwesterly in the eastern half of the state, tending light and variable in the western half of the state due to the presence of high pressure system centred in Upper West.
