South Coast Forecast

No warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 5:17 am EDT on Saturday 29 November 2014.

Weather Situation

A high centred to the west of Bass Strait extends a ridge over eastern New South Wales, with a second high pressure centre developing off the southern coast. This new high will strengthen and move to the central Tasman Sea over the next day or two, helping direct warmer and increasingly humid air from the tropics over New South Wales. Meanwhile a broad low pressure trough in the state's west should remain slow-moving throughout the forecast period, leading to an unsettled period of showers and thunderstorms across most districts from Sunday onwards.

Forecast for the rest of Saturday

Mostly sunny morning. The chance of a shower or thunderstorm inland this afternoon. Light winds becoming northerly 15 to 20 km/h in the morning then tending northeasterly 20 to 30 km/h in the middle of the day. Daytime maximum temperatures 24 to 29.

Fire Danger
Illawarra/Shoalhaven: High
Far South Coast: High

UV Alert from 8:40 am to 4:50 pm, UV Index predicted to reach 11 [Extreme]
