View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:05 pm EST on Monday 22 April 2019.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is maintaining a ridge towards northeast New South Wales, and directing east to northeasterly winds over most coastal areas. Meanwhile, a low pressure trough is moving into the state's west, associated with a cold front passing to the south. This trough will bring a southerly change to southern parts of the coast today, continuing through to central waters on Tuesday before stalling and decaying. Following this, the Tasman high is expected to have a brief return to dominance, before another trough and southerly change in the second half of the week.
