For people in Snowy Mountains, Australian Capital Territory and parts of Illawarra, South Coast and Southern Tablelands Forecast Districts.

Issued at 10:04 am Monday, 10 June 2019.

Weather Situation: Increased winds over the state's southeast as a front brushes the far south. Winds should ease by the later part of the day as the front rapidly moves into the Tasman Sea.

DAMAGING WINDS, with average wind speed 80 to 90 km/h and peak gusts in excess of 125 km/h, are occurring in Alpine peaks above 1900 metres, leading to blizzard conditions.
DAMAGING WINDS, with average wind speed 60 to 70 km/h and peak gusts in excess of 90 km/h, are forecast to spread to the rest of the warning area, including much of the southern ranges, ACT and the elevated parts of Illawarra and South Coast, from late this morning as the front brushes the southeastern quarter of the state during the period. In elevations below 1900 metres, damaging wind gusts are most likely to occur with either gusty thunderstorms or showers.

The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service recommends that back country travel be postponed until conditions improve.

Locations which may be affected include Thredbo, Perisher Valley, Charlotte Pass, Braidwood, Bowral, Canberra, Goulburn and Cooma.

Thredbo AWS recorded average wind speed 80 km/h at 4:00am this morning.
