Weather Situation
A slow-moving high pressure system near New Zealand extends a ridge to the east
coast of Australia, establishing a trade wind regime across the northern Tasman
Sea and directing generally easterly winds across Lord Howe Island. Little
change to this weather pattern is expected until later during the weekend when a
low pressure trough will extend from the Coral Sea towards Norfolk Island,
shifting the winds around to the southeast on Monday.
