Daily Weather Review for NSW and ACT

Issued at 4:32 pm EST on Wednesday 1 July 2015.

Weather Situation

A strong slow-moving high centred over South Australia extends a ridge across New South Wales. An upper level trough moving through the northeast of the state is expected to reach the Tasman Sea tonight. A strong cold front approaching Tasmania is expected to bring a cold southwest change to New South Wales on Thursday with showers or snow mainly about the southern ranges and southwest slopes. The high should then move over the state on Friday with dry settled conditions likely to persist for several days under its influence.

Highest rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am was 18 mm at Yass (Rural Fire Service).
The overnight minimum temperature range was from -9 degrees at Perisher Valley Obs to 14 degrees at Byron Bay.
The daytime highest temperatures recorded to 4pm ranged from 4 degrees at Cabramurra to 23 degrees at Lismore Airport.

Shower activity today was confined to the northeast of the state where light falls were recorded. The rest of the state remained dry and mostly sunny.

Minimum temperatures were above to well above average along the coast north of Wollongong and on the Northern Tablelands and Northwest Slopes & Plains, tending average in the Illawarra and South Coast, and below average across the rest of the state.

Maximum temperatures were generally closed to average along the coast and ranges, tending above average in the Northern Rivers, Mid-North Coast and Northern Tablelands, and below average across far western NSW.

Winds were generally light to moderate southwesterlies, tending south to southeasterly along the coast. Winds were moderate to fresh about parts of the Northern Tablelands.
