Weather Situation

A strong high pressure system over New Zealand is maintaining a ridge towards New South Wales today, resulting in southeast to northeasterly winds in coastal areas. A cold front will skim across southeast Australia today, with an associated trough bringing a southerly change to waters south of about Newcastle. Behind this, a new high is expected to move over the Tasman Sea at the end of the week, and should remain dominant through the weekend. Another trough and southerly change are likely early in the new week.
