Snowy Mountains Forecast

Issued: Wed Aug 26
A low pressure system near Sydney coast is very slowly moving northeast and heavy rain on the southern half of New South Wales coast will gradually ease Wednesday morning. During Thursday an upper trough will cross the west and southeast of the state and the low will deepen over the southern Tasman Sea with another low centre forming near the Bass Strait. This complex low pressure system is expected to remain across the southern Tasman Sea over the next few days while a strong high pressure system moves south of Tasmania extending a ridge to the north.
