South Coast Forecast

View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 5:17 am EDT on Sunday 26 October 2014.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge towards the Queensland coast, while a broad trough of low pressure lies across northeastern New South Wales, with a low and another trough over western New South Wales. Today the low and associated trough is expected to shift to the east under the influence of a passing Southern Ocean front. Many districts, especially on the ranges, are likely to see a continuation of unsettled weather in the afternoons over the next couple of days, while the west remains in the grip of a persistent hot airmass. This hot airmass will move over the northeast of the state on Monday. Another trough and associated cold front are forecast to affect the state early in the new week and bring somewhat cooler conditions, especially in the south, although no significant rainfall.
