Tomorrow will bring another cold morning across parts of NSW, with
early morning frost on ponds likely for the 8th day in a row. This will be the final day of this stretch of cold mornings as a front will bring a wet and windy change on Thursday.
Frost has been a feature state wide for more than 10 mornings in a
row for some locations. As a result the August average minima so far
are well below average. Northern Tablelands tops the table with
Tenterfield the August minimum average of minus 5, which is 7 below
average and the coldest stretch of August mornings in 4 years. Across the Sydney basin Camden and Richmond recorded another true freezing morning this morning and can expect the same again tomorrow.
A dominant high pressure system over the state has been bringing the clear skies that allow the night time cooling. The high has also brought glorious sunshine and warmer than average days.
Make the most of the sunshine though as late on Wednesday evening an approaching cold front will start to bring a change. On Thursday cloud will build across the state with the crossing of the front. This cloud will act as a blanket bringing night time temperatures back to average. The cold front will also bring widespread showers across the state. Winds will increase due to the formation of an intense low pressure system over the Tasman Sea. The strongest winds will be along the the NSW coast on Friday with wind gusts of up to 100km/h possible.
