Region's weather heads for a mixed bag

Wednesday September 26, 2012 - 13:11 EST

Weather in the New South Wales south east is shaping up as a mixed bag over the next two days.

The Weather Bureau says Friday will see high winds and rain with possible snow showers down to 900m on the Monaro.

But Canberra forecaster, Sean Carson, says tomorrow will be the opposite, as warm, dry winds move through the region.

He says people should prepare for an above average warm day.

“It is really going to bring temperatures up very warm at least to 27 degrees on the coast tomorrow and I wouldn't mind seeing some centres hit 30 degrees,� Mr Carson said.

“It will be 24 degrees in Cooma and even 20-odd degrees at Jindabyne tomorrow.

“The winds will start to strengthen at the Snowy Mountains and maybe the chance of a very brief shower around sunrise tomorrow morning but that will be gone well and truly by the time most people are out of bed.�
