Weather Situation

A high pressure system south of the Bight extends a ridge into western New South Wales while a deep low lies south of New Zealand. Vigorous southwesterly winds along the coast will gradually ease tonight and Monday as the high drifts across southeast Australia and the low loses influence, with winds shifting northerly as the high reaches the Tasman Sea on Tuesday. The next trough and southerly change are expected mid-week.
