View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:05 pm EDT on Wednesday 29 January 2020.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system near New Zealand extends a ridge to the north, while a weak low pressure trough lies on the northern New South Wales coast. This trough is expected to decay during Thursday, while a new high moves across Bass Strait to the Tasman Sea, where it is expected to strengthen as a cold front approaches from the west. This pattern will bring increasing northeasterly winds to most coastal areas during Thursday and Friday. The front is expected to bring a southerly change to the far south coast late Saturday, continuing through central parts during Sunday and northern waters on Monday.
