View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:05 pm EST on Monday 15 August 2022.

Weather Situation

A deep low centred near Tasmania is directing generally westerly winds over the New South Wales coast today, fresh to strong in some areas. The low is forecast to weaken and move away during Tuesday. This will allow a ridge to extend over New South Wales, delivering southerly winds to most coastal waters. Winds are expected to tend northerly from later on Wednesday and then increase during Thursday, ahead of a cold front, which will bring a west to southwesterly change on Friday.
