View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:05 pm EST on Wednesday 29 June 2022.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge across the northern waters while a weakening trough will brush the southeast overnight. After this, a new high pressure system is forecast to strength south of the Bight, extending a ridge across the southern waters while a trough develops along the northern parts. This pattern will bring south to southeasterly winds along the New South Wales coast from Thursday. There is potential for strong winds to linger in some areas through the weekend, depending on the development of the trough.
