New South Wales

Synoptic Situation: A high pressure system centred over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge over the New South Wales coast. This pattern will generate east to northeasterly winds until a cold front brings a vigorous southerly change to the southern and central coasts during Wednesday, and then weaken as it reaches northern parts on Thursday.
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.
