Mid North Coast Forecast

View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:31 pm EDT on Sunday 21 December 2014.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system off the New South Wales coast will drift slowly east during the coming days, while a trough develops over the state's west. The deepening of this trough early in the new week, assisted by an influx of warm and humid tropical air, is expected to bring unsettled weather to many districts during the coming days. It is likely that the trough will become more mobile during the second half of the week, shifting towards the northeast in response to an approaching upper-level system.

Partly cloudy. Slight (20%) chance of a shower. The chance of a thunderstorm. Winds northeasterly 20 to 30 km/h becoming light in the late evening.
