Forecast issued at 4:10 am EST on Saturday 8 August 2020.

Weather Situation

A trough lying near the coast, extending from a low over inland New South Wales, is forecast to deepen and form a low pressure system near the southern coast later this afternoon or evening. This low looks likely to linger throughout the weekend, bringing increased winds and waves to southern waters. These conditions look set to extend to central and northern parts of the coast on Monday, as the low centre moves north along the coast.
