South Coast Forecast

View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 5:15 am EST on Tuesday 24 April 2018.

Weather Situation

A high near New Zealand extends a ridge into southern New South Wales, while a trough with a small embedded low pressure circulation lies off the northern coast. Although this low is expected to remain offshore, there is some potential for heavy rain with thunderstorms for the north coast today. This pattern is expected to break down and shift away to the east during the second half of the week as a new high in the Bight strengthens a ridge across the region.

Forecast for the rest of Tuesday

Sunny. Areas of fog inland early this morning. Light winds becoming north to northeasterly 15 to 20 km/h in the middle of the day then becoming light in the evening. Daytime maximum temperatures in the low to high 20s.

Fire Danger
Illawarra/Shoalhaven: Low-Moderate
Far South Coast: Low-Moderate

Sun protection 9:50am to 1:50pm, UV Index predicted to reach 4 [Moderate]
