Mid North Coast Forecast

View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:30 pm EDT on Friday 13 December 2019.

Weather Situation

A trough of low pressure extends from Queensland into western New South Wales, with another trough moving slowly along the far north coast. Meanwhile, a high pressure system over the Bight extends a ridge across the state's south to the Tasman Sea. No significant changes in this pattern are expected during the next couple of days. A fairly weak cold front looks set to affect southeastern parts of the state on Monday, after which a high should move to the Tasman Sea. This is forecast to result in increasingly warm air being drawn down from central and northern Australia through the middle of next week.

Cloudy. Slight (30%) chance of a shower in the north, near zero chance elsewhere. Areas of smoke haze. The chance of a thunderstorm in the north early this evening. Light winds.
