Sydney Closed Waters

Tuesday 15 October

Synoptic Situation: A high pressure ridge lies over northern New South Wales coast while a trough of low pressure lying across inland parts of the state is gradually moving further eastwards. The ridge is directing north to northeasterly winds over the Sydney Waters for the remainder of the day until the trough brings a southerly change to the southern half of the coast overnight tonight. Winds throughout will tend east to northeasterly again by late Wednesday ahead of the next cold front on Thursday, strengthening and turning more westerly with the front. Winds will weaken during Friday as a new ridge develops across the north.
