Winter has one more cold blast to give us

ENJOY the beautiful sunshine while it lasts because we're set for another wintry blast as a strong cold front is set to march across New South Wales from Wednesday.

This afternoon the maximun temperature in Coffs Harbour reached an anti-winter mark of 20.7 degrees while tomorrow and Wednesday's forecast top temps of 25 degree each day offer an opportunity to pull out some of the summer clothes that have been sitting in the cupboard for a few months.

But that's where the early spring may end.

On Tuesday night and early into Wednesday morning a strong cold front will enter western parts of the state. This system will move through NSW during the day bringing a cold airmass and moisture with it.

For the Northern Tablelands a lack of moisture will be the main issue with the airmass drying out as it moves northwards.

Snowfalls are possible above 900 metres late on Wednesday and into Thursday morning. Snow showers will then clear quickly during Thursday evening and Friday morning.

A broad high pressure system will then be the dominant feature bringing more stable conditions but frosty mornings.

Weatherzone meteorologist Drew Casper-Richardson said while the mornings are still looking pretty brisk, the region will experience "pleasant temperatures for this time of year".

On Thursday however, there's the chance of a few showers and wind gusts caused by a cold front moving through the Coffs Coast.

"We're obviously coming into the back end of winter; you can see it's quite mild this week already, but that front will give people an indication that winter is still here," Mr Casper-Richardson said.
