NSW, QLD: Rain develops in northern NSW, inland QLD

An upper low that span off a passing Southern Ocean trough on Saturday moved into far NW NSW today, bringing cold air aloft and generating the surface trough visible on the chart above. The trough at the surface and the upper circulation above about 3km have moved significant amounts of moisture across the coast and into the border area, and the colder upper air arriving from the west moved instability into the area overnight. Thunderstorms were reported in western NSW from mid-afternoon yesterday, and rain, only some associated with storms, began falling in central northern NSW yesterday evening.

The heaviest falls in the 24 hours to 9am were in a north/south band to the east of Walgett. Rowena recorded 43.6mm, Burren Junction 37.2, Collarenebri 35.2 and Gwabegar 34.0. Showers became more insistent on the North Coast, where Cape Byron recorded 40.4 and South West Rocks near Kempsey 39.2.

During the day, rain continued along the NSW North Coast and developed down much of the QLD coast south of Townsville. As the upper system moved slowly east, thunderstorms and rain areas began in southern and central inland QLD. Further details are in the Daily Weather Summary for 28 JUN.

TAS: Ice again a problem on the roads

Widespread frost-level temperatures again produced icy conditions on roads around TAS this morning. Over 50 crashes involving about 100 vehicles were reported to police between midnight and 10am, mostly caused by ice on the roads. In the state's southeast, where Hobart City reported a minimum temperature of 1.3, crashes were reported at Sandfly, Premaydena, Mornington, Cambridge, Sorell, Mt Nelson and Glenorchy. The Bridgewater Bridge across the Derwent upstream of Hobart was described as "completely iced over" and was partly closed for an hour after a crash at 8.20am. Around Launceston, where the airport's minimum was -3.7, ice caused crashes at Perth, Hadspen and Longford. Both Launceston and Hobart's minima were the lowest for the month
