The high will drift slowly east during the next day or two, to be centred over the Tasman Sea by Saturday. A cold front is expected to skim across southern New South Wales during Sunday as the high weakens, before a second, stronger cold front on Monday. This front is forecast to bring a gusty west to southwesterly changes to coastal areas. Behind this, a new high is forecast to move across from the west, bringing a return to generally benign conditions.
