Weather notes: Going to be breaking some records for how dry it has been so far this year (in Sydney in particular), which is a bit of a waste as CTW has been such a bad position for guns so far!
I should also note that this long run of fine weather is reasonably likely to break as we head into June, in fact from about Wednesday onwards for NSW and VIC there looks like a big change in conditions, with some very early indications of the potential for an East Coast Low. I would not be surprised if we saw wetter than average conditions in that part of the country for the following 2-3 weeks.
Note: All times are local.
