WEATHER: SEVERE STORMS

Flood water in Coffs Harbour

Severe storms caused flash flooding at Coffs Harbour this afternoon. Nasty storms and heavy down pours also affected Taree and the Manning. It was all connected to a fresh southerly that has been making its way up the coast. This southerly is finally strong enough to clear some of the heat from the North West, making for a comfortable, mostly sunny weekend inland. On the eastern side of the divide another burst of showers will track up the North Coast tomorrow. Another fresh burst of southerly winds will reach Newcastle on Sunday afternoon, triggering more shower activity. There is some new swell on the way, southern point breaks will be the pick. Swell from Cyclone Pam will arrive late Sunday into Monday. Read More »

WEATHER: MORE STORMS

A big line of severe storms has been making its way across the North West from Narrabri to Nundle, hitting most areas in between, travelling in a north easterly direction tonight. The Hunter is also copping its fair share of severe storms this afternoon. It is ahead of a gusty southerly that will produce rain overnight for the Central Coast and Hunter, moving north during the day. There should be some moderate to heavy down pours as this system moves towards the Queensland border during the day. We also have three cyclones. Pam is growing into a monster and likely to skim along the Vanuatu archilpelago, while producing enough swell to reach the coast. Nathan is expected to turn away from the north Queensland coast tomorrow and Olwyn in the west will skim the Pilbara coast. Read More »

WEATHER: CYCLONE CENTRAL

Cyclone Pam is still intensifying while moving south in between Fiji and the Solomons. Cyclone Nathan is also intensifying, moving towards the northern tropical Queensland coast. The tropical low off Western Australia is likely to become a cyclone off the Pilbara coast. Northern New South Wales was under a ribbon of cloud today thanks to a slow moving trough. Some light rain fell inland north of the Gwydir highway. An active day of afternoon storm and shower development is expected over the southern areas of the North West, affecting areas around Tamworth to the Upper Hunter. Some storm cells will build over the ranges and push towards the Mid North Coast across Taree and the Manning tomorrow afternoon. Elsewhere a mostly fine day is expected. The wet weather is set to build along the New South Wales and south East Queensland ... Read More »

WEATHER: INLAND STORMS

Heather Gartshre Narrabri  weather

Storm development was quite widespread across the North West today, producing valuable rain to a selected few on the land. Rain is very much needed and tomorrow there should be more storm development across the North West, the Tablelands and Upper Hunter. It’s still very humid for the Central Coast, Hunter and areas to the north on the eastern side of the divide. A few afternoon showers are likely across the Northern Rivers as well. Read More »

Humidity levels are high east of the Divide once again, and more patchy shower and storm development is likely tomorrow across northern New South Wales. Read More »

WEATHER: A SWELL WEEKEND

Karynne Lawler weather Nobbys Beach

A succession of fast-moving fronts, and now an intense low in the Tasman, is generating a solid swell pummeling the New South Wales coast. The swell is going to remain big across the weekend. Winds have been quite favourable to produce some epic surfing conditions, but strong rips and huge sets are making for dangerous conditions. The weather is looking pretty good. The risk of showers is going to to remain on the small side for the northern New South Wales coast, so most of the broadcast region can expect a fine, mostly sunny weekend. Read More »

WEATHER: AUTUMN AWESOMENESS

Garry Owens WA weather

This is my favourite time of the year and the first week of March is living up to expectations. Mornings have been cool and the days sunny and warm. The only catch is, it’s getting hotter inland, exacerbating the drought situation. An early Autumn heatwave is unfolding across the nation’s interior and some of that heat is spilling across the North West. It’s also affecting inland areas such as the Upper Hunter and cities like Taree, Kempsey and Grafton. The coast will be fanned by gusty afternoon seabreezes. Ocean temperatures are warm so it’s great for a swim. The fine run should continue for most of the week. Read More »

WEATHER: COASTAL CLOUD TO BURN OFF

weather-southwestrocks-grantmcintyre

The southerly change that triggered a big line of severe storms yesterday pumped in plenty of cloud today that has wedged in between the mountains and the coast. Inland it is still sunny and hot. Along the coast tomorrow the cloud cover will burn off making for a fine Tuesday. There’s plenty of heat so expect the mercury to go on the rise quickly. Read More »

WEATHER: FINAL WEEKEND OF SUMMER LOOKING GOOD

It’s heating up across the Hunter, North West and Mid North Coast tomorrow, with north-westerly to north-easterly winds getting strong on the coast. The chance of showers for the Northern Rivers and south east Queensland will be small so it will be mostly fine until afternoon storms fire up along the northern New South Wales ranges. On Sunday, a change will be moving in and this is likely to trigger showers and storms for the Hunter and North West around Tamworth, before spreading further north during the afternoon. Swell is abating so it will be small for surfers but good for boaties. Read More »

WEATHER: A LITTLE STORM ACTION

taree_weather_web

A line of storms flared up this afternoon, stretching from the Upper Hunter along the ranges to New England and the border. They moved over the slopes and reached parts of the coast. We’re expecting more shower and storm development tomorrow, particularly around the ranges. Conditions will clear to kick start the weekend. A change is on the way for Sunday which will trigger more wet weather to close the weekend in the Hunter before spreading north. Read More »
