South Coast Forecast

View the current warnings for New South Wales

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

Weather Situation

A low pressure trough lies over northeast New South Wales, as a high near the Bight extends a ridge into the state's southwest. This high is expected to strengthen during the next few days as it moves slowly east, pushing a ridge along the New South Wales coast while the trough lingers over the inland. Conditions on the north coast may deteriorate over the weekend due to the presence of Tropical Cyclone Oma in the region, although there is currently a fair level of uncertainty regarding its movement and intensity.
