100% chance of rain forecast today
CARRYING an umbrella today is a safe bet, when the Bureau of Meteorology forecast 100% chance of rain.
A broad low pressure trough over our area of northern New South Wales is bringing humid and unsettled conditions.
As a result, showers and thunderstorms may be quite heavy for the next couple of days.
Meanwhile, a high in the Bight is extending a ridge across the south of the state, pushing southerly winds into southern and central districts.
On Tuesday the high is expected to strengthen and cross Tasmania, strengthening a ridge along the New South Wales coast.
The bureau states that showers and the chance of a thunderstorm are forecast and will be very heavy at times.
Temperatures will be in the mid to high twenties.
