View the current warnings for New South Wales

Forecast issued at 4:30 pm EDT on Monday 18 October 2021.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system lies over the Tasman Sea while a trough extends along the Queensland ranges into far northeastern New South Wales. This trough will interact with a front crossing Tasmania overnight, to develop an area of low pressure over the western Tasman Sea. This pattern will generate showery conditions along the coast for the coming days. Warm conditions look set to develop over inland areas on Thursday as another trough enters the state's far west.

Clear. Winds west to southwesterly 15 to 20 km/h becoming light in the evening.
