A dampened Easter period is likely over Eastern NSW as conditions turn stormy in the North East, while mostly fine conditions over VIC… turn wetter as the holiday progresses.
Its a mixed bag of weather across NSW and VIC during the Easter period, with the bulk of the unsettled weather focused over the Northern Rivers and Mid North Coast regions of NSW. A deep onshore East to North East flow is expected to dominate the North East pocket of NSW throughout the 4 day holiday resulting in isolated to scattered showers each day. These showers should help produce falls of 10-20mm with isolated higher falls possible across the 4 days. During Easter Sunday and Easter Monday, a surface trough is forecast to develop across the region and increase instability levels which should inevitably lead to some isolated thunderstorms – mostly on Easter Monday, which may produce locally heavier rainfall under them.

Across the NSW Southern and Central Coast regions, some isolated light showers are likely on Friday and Saturday with most rainfall totals remaining below 5mm. During Sunday and Monday, showers are expected to continue behind a cool change moving up the Coast which should bring some cooler temperatures also after the Central Coast sees endless 28-32ºc days.

Over Victoria, a mostly fine Friday and Saturday should turn more showery on Sunday and Monday in the West and Central districts as an onshore South West breeze starts to dominate. This breeze should then be cut off and lead to isolated showers solely located along the Coastal fringe of VIC… before conditions fine up on Monday.
Across the remainder of Inland VIC and the majority of Inland NSW, mostly fine conditions are expected throughout the holiday period.
