GAV’S WEATHER – VERY DANGEROUS SYSTEM DEVELOPING

All week we have had to deal with a trough sitting over the east coast spawning multiple small low pressure cells. Tonight one intense East-Coast Low will form off the northern NSW coast. This has the potential to produce large amounts of rain, strong winds and dangerous ocean conditions. The energy from this system will be more focused in the one area. Strong winds have begun to hit the Newcastle region with the wet weather set to intensify from tonight. The main danger area will extend north from Seal Rocks to Cape Byron.

GAV’S WEATHER – HEAVY RAIN SET TO RETURN TO THE COAST

The northern NSW coast got a much needed break from heavy overnight rain accumulating 100 to 200mm for most of the coast. The trough drifted offshore today. Tomorrow an East-Coast Low is likely to form so the onshore winds will increase and the rain will return. It is likely we will continue to see rain, heavy at times, continue along the coast over the weekend and into next week so more flooding is expected.

GAV’S WEATHER – SCORCHING HOT SUMMER

We’re only two months in but it is highly likely that this summer will be the hottest on record for Australia and the region has certainly copped the brunt of the heat with a lot more to come. The Hunter Valley has already exceeded its most days over 40 degrees which was 5. The Valley will probably reach 10 days over 40 within the fortnight. Moree has experienced 33 days in a row over 35. And there is no relief in sight for the North-West with plenty more high 30 and low 40 degree days to come as we move into the first week of February. The northern NSW coast will also continue to fell the heat with constant NW to NE winds.

The northern NSW coast and south-east Queensland have been suffering from constant cloud cover and showers. All this activity will give way to more heat during the second week of the new year.
