View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 10:02 am EST on Tuesday 18 June 2019.

Weather Situation

Winds are expected to continue to ease along central and northern parts of the coast today as the low pressure system over the northern Tasman Sea continues to weaken and move away to the east. Winds will tend north to northwesterly in the south ahead of an approaching low pressure trough from the west. This trough will bring a freshening south to southwest change to the south late this afternoon or evening, then spreading across the remaining waters on Wednesday. Generally southerly winds are then expected to prevail for much of the remaining week as a large high pressure system slowly approaches the region from the west.
