A cold front will continue to cross northeast New South Wales today, before
moving out over the Tasman Sea. Following this, a complex low pressure system
developing to the west of Tasmania will bring windy conditions to southern
parts of the state later today and during Wednesday, while a weak ridge of high
pressure extends across the north. Another cold front looks set to bring a
significant cold outbreak at the end of the week.
