Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge to the northern New South Wales coast. The high is expected to weaken and move east as a cold front approaches from the southwest this evening. Winds will shift northerly and increase into Tuesday, before the front brings a gusty west to southwesterly change during Wednesday. In the wake of this system, a low pressure system may develop over the Tasman Sea, bringing strong to gale force winds to parts of the New South Wales coast.
