View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:10 am EDT on Thursday 23 January 2020.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system lies over the Tasman Sea and extends a ridge to the northern New South Wales coast, while a cold front is approaching from the west. The combination of these two systems is directing fresh to strong north to northeasterly winds over coastal waters. The front will bring a weak southerly change to southern half of the New South Wales coast this afternoon and evening, which will stall and weaken around the Macquarie coast on Friday. Winds are expected to slowly shift back northeasterly over the weekend.

Forecast for Thursday until midnight
