Central West residents will have to wait until next Wednesday to experience rain in the region, according to the latest predictions.

Weatherzone meteorologist Graeme Brittain said the next three to four days will be dry in the region.

“We are expecting rain next Tuesday and Wednesday. But it is not going to be as widespread as we had yesterday,” Mr Brittain said on Thursday morning.

“The chances of thunderstorms are low at this stage. This forecast is however based on current weather conditions and it may change in the coming few days,” he said.​

Weatherzone is forecasting up to 10 millimetres of rain in Young, Orange, Blayney, Forbes and Lithgow and up to five millimetres of rain in Bathurst, Mudgee, Dubbo, Cowra, Parkes and Oberon on Wednesday, November 14.

Mr Brittain said the residents will continue to experience cool mornings for next few days before the mercury begins to rise on Sunday.

In Young on Thursday morning the temperature dipped to 6.1 degree Celsius at 6am. 

The cool change occurred on Wednesday with the maximum temperature recording just 12 degrees at 2pm.
