Eden Coastal Waters Forecast: Montague Island to Gabo Island

View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 10:00 pm EST on Saturday 2 July 2022.

Weather Situation

A strong high pressure system in the Bight currently extends a ridge across the southern Tasman Sea, while a trough of low pressure lies along the New South Wales coast. This pattern is generating fresh to strong winds about southern and central parts of the coast. Within the trough, an East Coast Low is likely to develop during Sunday and linger just offshore through Monday, accompanied by locally intense winds and large seas. Conditions are expected to gradually ease later Monday or Tuesday as the low and trough weaken and high pressure becomes dominant.
