GAV’S WEATHER: ANOTHER DRY WEEKEND AHEAD

It will be a windy weekend, with most of the nation set to remain sunny and dry. There is some frontal activity in the south west and across the Great Australian Bight, however it’s near cloudless over the remainder of the continent. Temperatures will remain mild to warm locally on Saturday, with a fast moving front heading for the south east. As the front passes temperatures will drop, with a cold Sunday on the way. The system won’t bring with it significant rain, however we may have better news this time next week.

GAV’S WEATHER: SLIGHTLY COOLER

Most of the nation is again sunny and dry. Another front is now passing over the SE. High level cloud streaks its way across southern Australia while the north is still clear. Another fast moving front will sweep across the SE. Temperatures will cool slightly locally. Yet another front is on its way to the SW corner of WA. Still no significant rain to be seen. A bit cooler behind the front for areas such as the Greater Hunter, remaining very warm for northern NSW and southern QLD.

SURF REPORT: FLAT SPELL SET TO CONTINUE

It’s been one of the longest flat spells in recent time, and unfortunately it doesn’t look like changing anytime soon. There has been some swell around the Gold Coast and the far northern end of New South Wales, however further south around Newcastle and the Mid North Coast the week has resembled a lake. Don’t expect it to change over the weekend either, with strengthening westerly winds holding down what swell is there. We are likely to see some more movement in the ocean next week, with the swell size increasing and the winds settling.

GAV’S WEATHER: HOT AND COLD WEEKEND

A taste of spring is on the way on Saturday with temperatures well above average, while on Sunday south westerly winds will keep temperatures on the cold side. There remains no sight of rain, with most of the nation again sunny and dry. More frontal activity is on the way, but will only affect the far south east and south western corners of the country. The strongest of these fronts will reach us here on the east coast, but will be significantly weaker when it arrives. Expect it to be very warm ahead of its arrival, and very cold following it.

GAV’S WEATHER: STILL DRY AND SET TO GET HOTTER

Most of the nation is again sunny and very dry. A front is now clearing from the SE. More frontal activity is on the way, but will only affect the far SE and SW corners of the country, so the wetter than average season will continue for them. Another large blocking high is going to move in and the extremely dry conditions will continue for us. The fronts will constantly hit the southern tips of the nation. So, another icy cold start with widespread inland frosts. Lighter winds and warmer temperatures which will build further in the coming days ahead of next cold change on Sunday.

GAV’S WEATHER: BIG DRY SET TO RETURN

Another dry, clear day is on the way with a cold frosty start. More frontal activity is expected but it’s set to only affect the far south east of the country, making for more good snow conditions. Another blocking high is set to move in across the remainder, meaning the run of extremely dry conditions will continue. Winds will be lighter over the next couple of days, ramping up towards the back end of the week.

GAV’S WEATHER: LIMITED RAIN FROM PASSING FRONT

The powerful storm front which has brought strong winds and wild winter conditions to the west is now weakening as it makes its way east. We can expect the front to cross New South Wales tonight, and into tomorrow morning. Totals from this system will be very small, with the the associated winds set to ease on Sunday. It will be warm in the lead up to the front passing, and cooler once it has passed. We appear to be in for another fine, dry weekend with slightly cooler temperatures and westerly winds.
