Forecast issued at 4:05 pm EST on Friday 26 August 2016.

Weather Situation

A low pressure trough lies across the central New South Wales coast while a high pressure system over the Bight moves slowly east and extends a ridge across the state. This will promote southeast to southwesterly winds across New South Wales waters for the remainder of today, before the coastal trough weakens from Saturday as the high pressure system moves over New South Wales, turning winds northeast to northwesterly for central and southern waters.
