Friday - Latest

An unstable flow in the wake of a vigorous cold front is maintaining gusty cool showers and the odd thunderstorm about southeastern SA, VIC, NSW and TAS. A broad region of high pressure is keeping remaining parts of the nation generally dry and stable.

Saturday 22:00 EST

A large high will cause winds to ease and showers to clear over inland NSW, VIC and SA, leading to a cold morning. The high will direct a few showers along the TAS, VIC and NSW coasts. A weak trough will cause the odd shower about the south central coast of WA.

Sunday 22:00 EST

A high will lead to a very cold morning creating widespread frost across southern WA, SA, TAS, VIC, NSW and southern QLD. The high will also direct a few showers along the eastern seaboard. Moist westerly winds ahead of a decaying front will produce showers in western TAS.

Monday 22:00 EST

A high should direct moist onshore winds along the QLD coast creating a few showers. The high will also keep the southern mainland clear and calm, leading to a cold and frosty morning. Unstable westerly winds should produce showers across TAS, heaviest in the west.

Tuesday 22:00 EST

A trough will start to deepen over inland QLD, producing patchy light rain. Moist onshore winds will continue to bring showers to the coast. Westerly winds will bring showers to southern VIC and TAS as a high leads to another cold morning over the southern mainland.

Wednesday 22:00 EST

Onshore winds will continue to feed a trough in QLD, triggering rain inland and showers along the QLD and northeast NT coasts. A high pressure ridge will lead to another cold morning over the southern mainland before a front brings showers to TAS, VIC and SA later.

Thursday 22:00 EST

A front may develop into a weak low in the southeast, producing showers and a cold change in SA, VIC and TAS. A trough in QLD will deepen and spread rain and coastal showers into northeastern NSW. A high pressure ridge will keep the west dry and clear.
