New South Wales

Synoptic Situation: A weak high pressure ridge stretches along the NSW coast and will persist during the weekend. A cold front is expected to sweep across the southern half of the coast on Monday. In its wake a new high pressure ridge will develop, resulting in strengthening onshore winds from Tuesday.
Wind and wave forecasts are averages. Wind gusts can be 40 per cent stronger than the forecast, and stronger still in squalls and thunderstorms. Maximum waves can be twice the forecast height.
