A cold front over the southern Tasman Sea and southeast NSW is weakening as it approaches a high pressure system centred near New Zealand. Another front, current over waters well south of the Bight will reach Tasmania Saturday then weaken. A third, stronger cold front is expected to move northeast from the Southern Ocean during Sunday, crossing NSW Sunday night and Monday with strong to gale force winds to follow over coastal waters. A high pressure system is likely to develop over NSW early in the new week as a low moves over the Tasman Sea towards New Zealand.
