Hunter Coastal Waters Forecast: Seal Rocks to Broken Bay

View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:05 pm EDT on Sunday 28 February 2021.

Weather Situation

A trough of low pressure bringing a weak southerly change to southern and central parts of the New South Wales coast today is expected to stall and decay in the north tonight. A more vigorous southerly change will affect the southern half of the coast on Monday, continuing to the northern border on Tuesday, associated with a deepening low pressure system over the Tasman Sea. Behind this, a high south of the Bight is forecast to extend a ridge along the coast, and looks set to remain the dominant feature in the region through much of the coming week.
