View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:30 pm EST on Monday 20 May 2019.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system near the New South Wales coast is forecast to slowly drift over the Tasman Sea over the coming days, maintaining a ridge across the state. This ridge will be the dominating feature over much of this week, apart from a cold front that is forecast to skim to the south of the state today. Then a stronger front looks set to cross the southern half of the state towards the end of this week.
