2017 HOTTEST RECORD FOR NBN BROADCAST REGION

2017 was the 3rd hottest year on record for the nation as a whole but for northern New South Wales and South East Queensland, it was the hottest on record.

The tropical low is expected to reach cyclone status. So partly cloudy along the coast with south east winds. Remaining warm to hot. Hot inland with afternoon storms developing over the ranges and the NW. Fine or the Hunter and Central Coast.

Record rainfall has drenched the mid north coast, especially Port Macquarie. Substantial rain fell during the day yesterday, and at around 10pm thunderstorms returned, with even heavier falls.

The front moving across NE NSW is still producing some rain periods and thunder activity.

The next weather system is moving in over the south-east. That change will reach the Central Coast and Hunter early tomorrow morning. We are in for a hot night tonight. The weak southerly change won’t make it past the Mid-North Coast. It also isn’t strong enough to clear the heat inland, so the hot weather will continue into next week.

GAV’S WEATHER: HEATWAVE SET TO PEAK

There is a large, slow moving high which plans to sit over the Tasman at the end of the week. It’s making sure conditions remain hot and mostly sunny, with daily coastal sea breezes.
