Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT
Issued at 4:40 pm EDT on Monday 22 December 2014.
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is drifting slowly east, while a broad trough lies near the western border of New South Wales. The deepening of this trough during the next day or two, assisted by an influx of warm and humid tropical air, is expected to bring a period of unsettled weather which will affect most districts. It is likely that the trough will become more mobile during the second half of the week, shifting towards the northeast in response to an approaching upper-level system.
Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 22 mm at Glen Innes Ag Station.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from 6 degrees at Charlotte Pass to 27 degrees at White Cliffs.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 19 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 41 degrees at Bourke.
Today was a mostly cloudy day across western NSW, with partly cloudy skies in the east leading to a stormy afternoon, with strong winds recorded in Richmond and heavy rainfall observed near Braidwood.
Minimum temperatures were above average across NSW, tending close to average in the Northern Rivers and Mid-North Coast.
Maximum temperatures were generally above average across NSW, tending close to average in the Northern Rivers.
Winds were generally moderate north to northeasterlies across inland NSW, tending north to northwesterly in the far west of the state, and moderate to fresh northeasterlies along the coast
