A large slow moving east coast low has now developed in the Tasman and there it will remain for the weekend.
The low will produce strong southerly winds and whip up the swell.
Coastal showers will blow in from Saturday continuing into early next week. The patchy shower activity will only fall east of the Divide.
The weather will remain fine across the western slopes and plains.
Offshore boating is not recommend, head for protected inland waterways.
Some decent waves should be found in the protected southern corners and point breaks.
