Weather Situation

A high pressure system in the Tasman Sea is directing moist northeasterly winds over New South Wales and into a low-pressure trough over South Australia. As the high moves slowly eastwards, this trough will move towards New South Wales and is expected to start affecting the the southwest of the state from Monday, generating areas of rain and isolated thunderstorms. The trough will then progress northeastwards on Tuesday and stall over central parts of the state on Wednesday. Rain is expected to extend over the southern half of the state on Tuesday and Wednesday with some heavy falls possible.
