WEATHER: Slight chance of rain today

TODAY may be a day to wear short sleeves but take a warm jacket just in case.

The Bureau of Meteorology has predicted a partly cloudy day with areas of morning fog.

There is only a slight chance of a shower with light winds.

Daytime maximum temperatures will be in the mid to high 20s.

The weather we have been experiencing has been caused by a strong and slow-moving high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea extends a ridge across New South Wales.

This ridge is expected to gradually weaken over the next few days as the high moves further east.

A weak low-level trough will linger over southwest and central New South Wales during Friday and Saturday, before a cold front is forecast to cross the state during Sunday and Monday.
