View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:05 pm EDT on Thursday 11 February 2016.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the central Tasman Sea extends a ridge to the north coast of New South Wales coast, while a weak trough lies over the south coast and is expected to move southwards and dissipate during the next day or so. For the next few days, the ridge will maintain east to southeasterly winds along the north coast, tending northeasterly along the central and south coast, apart from southeasterly winds along the far south coast today due to the trough. On Sunday a substantial southerly change is likely on the south and central coasts.
