Get ready for a very mild night with a hint of Summer in the air for north east NSW and south east QLD ahead of a cold, wintry blast that will sweep in across the Hunter, North West and Mid North Coast tomorrow morning. There’s lots of cold air in this system so the rain will fall as snow drops on the higher peaks of the Northern Ranges and Barringtons. The temperature drop will be around 10 degrees so it will feel a lot more like winter than spring for the next few days. Read More »

This will maintain the strong southerly winds to kick start the weekend and keep those patchy showers rolling across the Hunter coast. The southern protected point breaks will continue to rock with the impressive swell. Offshore boating is not recommended. The system will begin to move away from the coast during the day making for a fine Sunday for all. Mild weather is on the way ahead of a cold outbreak during the middle of next week to help chill out the first few days of Spring. Read More »

The intense low that caused the flooding rain on the north NSW coast has moved into the Tasman and is set to stall. That means that it will sit there spiralling around whipping up huge seas while producing strong southerly winds. The shower activity will ease further with mostly fine conditions returning to the coast. There is an increased chance of seeing a little more shower activity in between Gosford and Taree. The main feature will be the huge waves making for some pretty epic surfing conditions in the protected, southern, point breaks along the east coast. Read More »

Overnight totals around Kempsey and Coffs Harbour toppled the 100mm mark. The intense rain band continued on its path north today, pushing some of the totals around Coffs to 150mm. The rain has swamped Grafton and the Northern Rivers this afternoon. Tomorrow the complex low will form into a single low pressure cell and move offshore generating a very large swell that will cause coastal erosion. Showers will continue but they will ease in the north. The showers are likely to continue for the next few days in between Gosford and Taree as the dry weather returns elsewhere. Read More »

As the two merge the rain will intensify, along with the winds and large seas and swell. There is still the chance of flooding over the northern NSW coast. The danger area will be in between Coffs Harbour and the QLD border. The good news is the rain has been pushing inland over the north west and there should be more in the coming days. Read More »
