New South Wales

Synoptic Situation: Northeasterly winds are expected to increase ahead of a cold front which will bring a vigorous southerly change to southern and central coastal areas on Wednesday, and then weaken as it continues through northern parts on Thursday. Following this, a high pressure ridge is forecast to extend along the New South Wales coast and there is the potential for a coastal trough to extend from Queensland into the northern waters during the latter part of the weekend.
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.
