View the current warnings for New South Wales

Weather Situation

Winds have mainly shifted south to southeasterly today in the wake of a cold front that is currently pushing through the far northern coast. A high pressure system over the Great Australian Bight moves east over the Tasman Sea during the next few days, extending a ridge to the New South Wales coast, and bringing east to southeasterly winds to the waters.
