WEATHER: RAIN ON THE WAY

taree_weather_web

We’ve had a very warm week, ahead of a rain band that has already delivered record-breaking falls across parts of South Australia. Some locations have recorded their best April rain in 100 years of records. The cloud cover associated with this system could be seen in Newcastle and the Hunter today. Tomorrow it will spread further north and rain will start to fall Saturday night, before moving across the NBN broadcast region during Sunday. On Monday, an east coast low is expected to form and it could be a nasty one. East coast lows are at their most dangerous when they retrogress or move in a westerly direction back towards the coast once formed. The longer they sit on the coast the more damage they can do, especially if all its energy is released over one area, something that happens if ... Read More »

WEATHER: WEEKEND RAIN ON THE WAY

weathervallabeach

We’re experiencing some very warm temperatures across the region today. When it gets unseasonably warm you can almost guarantee some form a of a change is on the way. There is a mass of cloud making its way across the country at the moment. That high level cloud will start to steal the sunshine across the Hunter tomorrow. The cloud cover will spread north across the broadcast region during Saturday. A cold front will then collide with this warm, moist air, producing rain which will start to fall Saturday night. This will make for a wet Sunday for everyone. Widespread moderate to heavy falls are likely, very similar to Easter Saturday in fact. An east coast low is expected to form Monday into Tuesday, whipping up another big swell, strong winds and coastal rain. Read More »

WEATHER: A CONSISTENT WEEK AHEAD

This weekend we will see partly cloudy skies and a few brief showers roll in across the coast, as the inland areas of the Upper Hunter and North West remain dry. Temperatures will be around the mid-20s for most and this trend will continue into next week. The big swell on the coast will abate, but conditions will remain quite rough. Read More »

WEATHER: BEAUTIFUL AUTUMN WEATHER BEFORE CLOUD RETURNS

Weather Maitland Mick Kelly

It is going to be cold tonight and very chilly when we wake. Even the Gold Coast and Northern Rivers will have a little chill in the air tomorrow morning. Frosts will be about on the Tablelands. The winds will ease and the sun will shine warming things quickly through the day. There is high level cloud moving across the nation, shearing off Cyclone Ikola which is weakening quickly. Over the weekend the coast will also be affected by cloud thanks to light, onshore winds triggering a few isolated showers. Read More »

WEATHER: WINTER A STEP CLOSER

The first snow of the season has fallen on the Central Tablelands at Oberon and Orange this afternoon, as an intense low spirals over southern New South Wales and Victoria. This will pump cold, dry air north. It will get windy with gale wind warnings issued for the Hunter and strong wind warnings elsewhere. Expect some very cold nights and frosty mornings, but it will be mostly sunny for the next couple of days until coastal showers settle in at the end of the week. Read More »

WEATHER: SATURATED SATURDAY BEFORE MARVELLOUS MONDAY

Terrigal

It was a very wet Easter at times, but as expected, it all blew over allowing us to dry out before the long weekend’s end. We squeezed in a great day before a big line of storms made its way across the west this afternoon. This is a pre-frontal trough. The front behind it has lots of cold air wrapped up in it. This will make sure the Autumn weather roller coaster stays on track. Get ready for some cold nights and cooler days. Once the front moves through we won’t see much rain. It will be clear and cool across the region until costal showers develop at the end of the week. Read More »

WEATHER WATCH: OVERCAST MONDAY

taree_weather_web

After a superb weekend of sunshine across most of the region, the cloud has closed in bringing with it some patchy rain periods across the North West. A few storms have also flared up on the Mid North Coast and adjacent mountains. More cloud and showers with heavy down pours are possible along the coast tomorrow with some nasty storms set to develop. Conditions will ease across the Hunter and North West in the middle of the week, but the wet weather is set to return across the Easter long weekend for most of the NBN broadcast area. Read More »

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 »
