Weather Situation

A high pressure ridge over the Tasman Sea will become the dominant feature today as the remnants of a trough continues to weaken this morning. A new trough is expected to move along southern and central parts of the coast later today, reaching Sydney overnight. This trough looks set to linger about the New South Wales coast for a few days, gradually weakening as the next high moves from the Bight to the Tasman Sea during the second half of the week.
