Weather Situation

A low pressure system lies over the Tasman Sea with a trough extending from the low back towards the NSW north coast. The low and trough are expected to move fairly rapidly away to the east during Saturday. In their wake a strong high pressure system will move over southeastern Australia during the weekend to become the dominant influence into the new week. As the low moves away and the high becomes established southerly winds will gradually ease.
