WEATHER UPDATE: EAST COAST LOW TO FORM
July 18, 2012 at 3:50 pm
18 July 2012 A shallow inland trough will help increase the cloud cover producing enough moisture to create widespread, light, patchy rain across the North East during Wednesday the 18th .
A rain band has also been moving across South East Queensland. That trough will move east clearing during Thursday, forming an east coast low. That low will deepen during Saturday producing some solid swell for our beaches for the weekend.
Conditions will become dangerous for offshore boating and rock fishing and surfing will only be for the fit and experienced.
The South East winds will pick up speed and drive in more moisture producing coastal showers heavy at times. It looks like this low is going to stall meaning it could take some time to clear from the Tasman.
That will make sure the swell lingers well into next week but that also means, so will the coastal showers.
This system is good news for inland farmers as the risk of frosts will ease from here on in, bad news for the coast that doesn’t need any more rain right now especially across the weekend.
