Weather Situation
A cold front has crossed Lord Howe Island today, as a high pressure system to
the northeast gradually weakens. A new ridge of high pressure will establish
itself south of the island over the southern Tasman Sea on Saturday. Meanwhile,
a trough is expected to develop near the northern New South Wales coast and and
move east toward Lord Howe Island late Saturday or Sunday with a low developing
within this. Impacts to the island will be dependant on the movement of this
low and there is a possibility of the island seeing gale force winds and heavy
rain if the low moves close enough. Settled weather should return by Tuesday as
the trough clears further to the east.
