Snowy Mountains Forecast

Issued: Fri Oct 23
A high pressure system near New Zealand extends a ridge towards the Queensland coast, while a weak low pressure trough lies over inland New South Wales. Another low pressure system, currently over South Australia, will move slowly across eastern Australia during Friday and Saturday, interacting with warm and humid air to trigger showers and thunderstorms in many areas. This will be followed closely by a cold front which is expected to enter the state's southwest on Saturday and then continue through to the northeast on Sunday, bringing significantly cooler conditions. In the early parts of next week, a new high pressure system is forecast to strengthen to the south of Tasmania, with a trough lingering near eastern New South Wales. This pattern has potential to maintain showery conditions in eastern areas for a number of days.
