Warning Summary at issue time
Nil.
 
Weather Situation
A high pressure system in the northern Tasman Sea is slowly drifting east while
a front crossing New South Wales and the southern Tasman Sea is deepening into a
low pressure system off the New South Wales coast. This low pressure system will
remain near New South Wales coast until the mid-week period as the next high
pressure system over the Bight moves into the southern Tasman Sea behind the
front and cradles the low. The low then will weaken as the high strengthens and
the next front approaches the western Tasman Sea toward the end of the week.
