Weather Situation
A strong high pressure system over western NSW is extending a ridge across the
northern Tasman Sea, while a series of fronts are moving across the southern
Tasman Sea with associated weak troughs affecting the region. This pattern will
bring generally stable weather conditions over the next few days apart from some
passing showers, before windy and showery conditions develop from the later part
of Tuesday as a strong front associated with a Tasman Low approaches Lord Howe
Island. The front is forecast to cross Lord Howe Island on Wednesday morning,
but windy and showery conditions will remain due to the influence of the Tasman
Low.
