Snowy Mountains Forecast

Issued: Wed Dec 16
A high pressure system over the central Tasman Sea extends a ridge to southeast Queensland while a broad, slow-moving trough lies over NSW. The high is expected to weaken today as the trough deepens, with a humid, unstable airmass spreading over eastern NSW. As a result, widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected over the eastern half today with some localised heavy falls possible. Showers and storms should mostly contract to the northeast third on Thursday, then tend to clear on Friday as a new high moves into the southern Tasman Sea and gradually extends a ridge over NSW.
