Weather Situation
A deep complex low pressure system will remain near New Zealand over the
weekend, before moving further east early new week. At the same time, a high
pressure system, currently located over southeastern Australia, extends a ridge
towards the northern Tasman Sea. This high will gradually progress further east
during the weekend, to become the dominant pressure system for the Tasman Sea
early next week. As a result, fresh southwesterly winds and occasional showers
are expected for Lord Howe Island over the rest of this week, with winds tending
south to southeasterly and easing early new week.
