No warnings for New South Wales
Forecast issued at 4:36 pm EST on Monday 30 May 2016.
A strengthening high pressure system near Tasmania extends a ridge into New South Wales, and is directing generally southerly winds along the coast today. This high is expected to move slowly east across the Tasman Sea during the next few days, bringing a gradual return to onshore winds. There are some indications that a weak low pressure system may develop off the New South Wales coast towards the end of the week, although the next significant change is not likely until the weekend.
