View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:31 pm EST on Friday 22 August 2014.

Weather Situation

A strong high pressure system is centred over the southern Tasman Sea, with a trough offshore of the northern coast of New South Wales. These two systems will dominate the weather over the weekend as the high drifts slowly east allowing the trough to extend south over the central parts of the coast into the new week where it is expected to deepen. A weak trough is also expected to brush the far southern parts of the state late on Saturday and into Sunday associated with a cold front passing over Victoria this weekend.

Forecast for the rest of Friday

Cloudy. Showers, more frequent near the coast. Winds south to southeasterly 15 to 20 km/h becoming light in the evening.

Saturday 23 August
