Warmer weather coming

A shower of rain at sunrise on Sunday morning.

THE arrival of spring in the Tumut, Adelong and Batlow region hasn’t exactly been heralded by spring-type conditions, but warmer, drier weather is on the way.

“The combination of a deep low south of Tasmania and a high pressure ridge over Central Australia has maintained fairly cool westerly airstream across NSW this week,” Wagga-based Bureau of Meteorology technical officer Nigel Smedley said.

“A series of cold fronts embedded within this airstream will move over the state’s south (including us) in the latter part of this week, restricting rainfall to the south.”

Snow has been reported as low as 600 metres during the week in the South West Slopes.

“On the weekend, the ridge will extend across NSW as the low moves away,” Mr Smedley said.

Tomorrow will be partly cloudy, with temperatures ranging from -1C to 14, but on Sunday, it will be sunny and -2 to 17. It will be partly cloudy on Monday and temperatures will climb from -1 to a comparatively balmy 18. It will only go as low as 5C on Tuesday and get up to 18, but it will be partly cloudy and there is a 70 per cent chance of 0-3mm of rain.

The following day it will range from 5 to 16 and be partly cloudy with a 70 per cent chance of 3-8mm of rain.
