Snowy Mountains Forecast

Issued: Wed May 17
A high pressure system southeast of Tasmania extends a ridge over Victoria and New South Wales. The ridge is sandwiched between two deep low pressure systems, one over the central Tasman Sea and the other in the Bight. These systems will move only slowly eastwards. The low to the west is expected to move northeastwards over South Australia on Thursday as a large high pressure system moves to the south of Tasmania with a ridge over the Tasman Sea. An upper level trough moving across South Australia will lead to some rain developing over the far west of New South Wales late today, which will then spread further east from Thursday.
