Mid North Coast Forecast

No warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:30 pm EDT on Thursday 21 March 2019.

Weather Situation

A broad trough of low pressure lies off the New South Wales coast, with another over western New South Wales. The inland trough is deepening today and on Friday in response to an approaching upper-level system, and is then expected to drift across western and southern parts of the state during the weekend. The next significant cold front looks set to push through southern districts on Monday, continuing through the north on Tuesday. Remnant moisture from Tropical Cyclone Trevor (currently over far north Queensland) may influence the weather in New South Wales in the new week, although there remains a high level of uncertainty around this.
