Forecast updated at 5:49 pm EST on Sunday 26 September 2021.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system near Tasmania extends a weak ridge across much of the state, in the wake of a trough that has moved offshore of the southeast coast today. The trough will move back westward across the interior early next week as the high drifts into the Tasman Sea, drawing moisture further inland. The trough is expected to strengthen over west on Wednesday as an upper trough amplifies over southern states, then move slowly eastward through the end of the week.
