Areas that are likely to see the worst of this storm are from Port Macquarie to Forster. Strong winds, heavy down pours, big seas, flash flooding with the potential for river flooding. Some of this rain will spill over the mountains falling across the NW. Isolated storm development is also likely.

PERFECT START TO 2016 COMING TO AN END QUICKLY

The first day of the new year has been spot on but the first week is going to be a wet one. The monsoon low over central Austral is going to move across NW NSW from Sunday spilling across the rest of the broadcast region on Monday. By Tuesday/Wednesday an east coast low is expected to form. Periods of rain, heavy at times and storms could drop large amounts of rain in a short period causing flooding. So make the most of the fine weather and get prepared for this system. Who will be hit the worst is yet to be determined. We will have a better idea in the coming days.

GREAT NEW YEAR’S EVE BEFORE FIRST BIG RAIN OF 2016 ARRIVES

Tomorrow is looking great but early next week the monsoon low will begin to move in across the region and widespread rain is on the way with the potential for some heavy falls. Flooding may occur from the develop system.

GAV’S WEDNESDAY WEATHER

Great looking NYE. This NYE should be fantastic. Today was spectacular across the Central Coast, Hunter, NW and MNC. The southerly winds will continue but the risk of showers will ease for the Gold Coast and NE NSW. We see some big rain during the first week of 2016 thanks to the monsoon low moving further south across inland Australia.

GAV’S WEATHER

Scorcher weekend. The dreaded hot NW winds are ready to whistle back in driving the temperatures into the high 30s and low 40 across the weekend. Bushfire dangers will rise ahead of the next change coming through on Tuesday for most of the region. Afternoon/evening showers and storm development will continue for northern NSW on Christmas Eve. Christmas Day should be mostly fine but there will be some isolated shower development for northern NSW and it will be quite warm. On Boxing Day a burst of wet weather is again expected to return especially for the coast.

WEATHER: A BIT OF EVERYTHING FOR THE WEEK AHEAD

PHOTO: A big thanks to Renata Daniel for sending in this gem of Mount Sugarloaf.  Today another dry southerly tracked up the coast arriving at Newcastle just after lunch. This southerly will continue up the coast over night and tomorrow. There is not a great deal of shower or storm activity expected from this change. There’ll be a greater chance around the mountain areas near Coffs Harbour and the northern border ranges into SE QLD. The southerly will hold down the mercury but on Wednesday it will climb peaking on Thursday where we again see temperatures hit the high 30s for most. Another stronger southerly will come through at the end of Thursday evening.

WEATHER: ROUND ONE OF HEATWAVE BEGINS TOMORROW

PHOTO: A blistering hot Port Macquarie captured by Katrina Begg. We’ve enjoyed two glorious Spring days after the recent rain. From tomorrow the pendulum swings back the other way with a wave of heat set to move in for the rest of the week. Widespread 30 degree plus days will unfold with areas such as Moree likely to hit 40 degrees for at least three consecutive days. The heatwave will peak Friday with many locations set to reach the high 30s and low 40s. A southerly change will sweep through on Saturday, this will cool the coast considerably but inland there is only a 5 degree temperature drop across the NW Plains. We’ll enjoy cooler weather for the start of next week but a second less intense burst of heat will return next Wednesday.
