We’ve seen plenty of cloud this week with higher humidity levels and some localised heavy falls coming down across north east New South Wales. Over the next couple of days, including the weekend, things are going to become warmer with increased sunshine. Rain is desperately needed, as this week’s system didn’t deliver the goods to the majority of the region. Next week there is a more promising system brewing, which may deliver the best rain in months. Read More »

Cooler conditions have now spread across the entire region, with plenty of cloud currently keeping the sun at bay. The cloud cover will break up further for the Greater Hunter, and again, there is the chance of seeing storms develop across the Upper Hunter. There is still the possibility of receiving some rain across the North West with patchy showers and storm develop on the cards. Falls will be on the light side and will be localised. The region with the best chance of seeing more wet weather again is the Northern Ranges, Rivers and south east Queensland. The stalled trough will begin to clear making for a fine weekend.

This system is now ready to stall over north east New South Wales and more wet weather is on the way, mostly affecting the ranges and the Northern Rivers in the form of showers and storms. Falls elsewhere will be very little. Onshore winds are delivering relief with the broadcast region becoming cooler in the days ahead. The trough in the north will clear by the weekend and we may have a better rain event next week. Read More »

PHOTO: Thanks to Kaila Darcy for this amazing snap of last night’s storm in Newcastle. Storms have been a real feature over the last couple of days and there are more to come. A passing front and associated trough is set to trigger widespread rain and storms that should see most of the region receive some much needed wet weather. That approaching system helped fire up more storms across the Hunter and North West today. Tomorrow the cloud will increase and temperatures will finally drop after record breaking November heat. The slow moving system will contract to north east New South Wales during tomorrow, before arriving at the Gold Coast on Wednesday. Read More »

There is a bit of relief on the way for coastal areas, stretching from Gosford to Coffs Harbour in the form of a southerly change pushing through overnight. This won’t be strong enough to fully clear the heat so on Sunday the dreaded north westerly winds will kick in even harder and the mercury will rise further. High 30s and low 40s are expected across the Greater Hunter and North West. Mid to high 30s along the coast, with a strong seabreeze drawing in. The heat will continue on Monday before we start to see some rain develop on Tuesday and Wednesday. Read More »

PHOTO: Thanks to Scott Gilbert for this stunning sunrise at Wangi. Cloudy and cool for the Hunter today, hot and sunny for the North West and wet and stormy over the border ranges. There’s been quite a lot of cloud across the broadcast region today. Tomorrow that will be cleared from the Hunter thanks to increased hot north westerly winds that will drive up the mercury matching the North West. The heat will begin seeping into the north east corner of New South Wales in the coming days, making for a hot weekend. The afternoon storm development is expected to continue over the northern ranges. A southerly will drop temperatures for Newcastle on Saturday, helping the city to dodge the extremities once again.
