Snowy Mountains Forecast

Issued: Mon Apr 24
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge towards the northern New South Wales coast. The high is expected to weaken during Monday and move east as a cold front approaches from the southwest. This front, with an associated trough, will affect New South Wales during Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing widespread rain followed by a significantly cooler change. A new high pressure system is forecast to develop over the Bight during the second half of the week, extending a ridge eastwards in the front's wake and promoting generally fine weather, albeit with some cool mornings.
