coast of Australia, while a low pressure system over Coral Sea is extending a
trough toward the northeastern Tasman Sea. These systems will maintain a steady
weather pattern with a fresh east to southeasterly airstream over Norfolk Island
for the next couple of days. Increasing shower activity is expected from Sunday
as the trough associated with the low deepens and makes its way to the west and
starts to impact Norfolk Island. Come Tuesday the positioning of the trough is
uncertain, though lingering shower activity is expected.
