Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 4:34 pm EDT on Tuesday 9 February 2016.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system developing over the western Tasman Sea extends a ridge along the New South Wales coast, while a weak trough lies across the state's west. The inland trough is expected to become orientated northwest-to-southeast during the second half of the week, with some eastern and central districts becoming more unsettled as an upper-level feature moves overhead.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 9 mm at Crawford.
The overnight minimum temperature range was from 6 degrees at Bombala AWS to 26 degrees at Fowlers Gap.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 18 degrees at Thredbo Top Station to 39 degrees at Ivanhoe Airport.

A mostly sunny day across the state, with cloudy skies about the north coast and patchy cloud developing in the Riverina and Southern Tablelands. Shower activity was confined to the Mid-North Coast and Northern Rivers.

Minimum temperatures were generally close to average, tending below average in the Northwest Slopes & Plains, and above average in the Lower Western and Southwest Slopes.

Maximum temperatures were close to average across much of the state, tending above acerage across southern and western inland districts.

Winds were generally light to moderate east to southeasterlies along the coast, tending generally light across inland districts and turning northeasterly along the western slopes.
