New South Wales

Synoptic Situation: A trough sweeping across the east today is bringing a cool southerly airstream along the coast while a high pressure system south of Tasmania extends a ridge across the inland parts of the state. Winds will gradually turn east to northeasterly during the mid week as the high pressure system slowly enters the Tasman Sea. Meanwhile, a low pressure system over the Tasman sea will generate large and powerful southeasterly swells across the northern half of the coast from the latter part of Tuesday, bringing hazardous surf conditions.
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.
