SURF REPORT: LACK OF SWELL ACROSS THE WEEKEND

There’s not much on offer for surfers this weekend, with a lack of swell and strong westerly winds keeping the ocean flat. Your best bet will be hitting the wave magnet spots that have some protection from the offshore winds, and keeping away from the high tide. The water temperature and wind chill will mean you’ll need to rubber up. SEE ALSO: WEATHER CHAT

GAV’S WEATHER: COLD WINDY WEEKEND AHEAD

A wintry front is making its way across the south east corner of the country, with a lot of cold air on the way with little to no rain for most local areas. We may even see snow flurries across the Barringtons on Sunday. The front will be a vigorous one, dropping temperatures, and causing windy, wet and wild weather across Victoria, with some nice snow across the Alpine districts. Locally we are in for a cold weekend, however the sun will hang in there. We can expect cold nights and freezing mornings across the weekend. SEE ALSO: WEEKEND SURF REPORT

GAV’S WEATHER: FINE WEATHER AHEAD

Another winter low is making its way across the Bight, while most of the country is again cloud free. The system crossing the Bight will bring some wet weather to Victoria and the South East, with some nice snow on the way for the resorts. We can expect another font to move in behind the current front. A fine looking day in on the way tomorrow as the westerly winds continue, while over the weekend we’re set for some extremely cold weather.

GAV’S SURF: SATURDAY MORNING THE PICK

Saturday morning is looking like the best option over the weekend, with a dropping tide helping reveal those open beach breaks. The swell isn’t going to be big, but you can expect it to be clean thanks to westerly winds. A southerly change will come through on Sunday. Your local wave magnets will be the go to maximise the swell, along with some of the region’s reef breaks.

GAV’S WEATHER: POOR START TO THE WEEKEND

A large amount of cloud is streaming in from the west towards South Australia and into Victoria and New South Wales,  keeping temperatures to a minimum. The large cloud band is producing rain but totals will be small, with the rain to move in across the Greater Hunter and North West tonight, taking most of Saturday to clear. In its place will be a southerly change, so coastal communities can expect showers to move back in. It will be overcast and cold, with light rain settling in at times.

GAV’S WEATHER: RAIN TO INCREASE ACROSS NSW NORTH COAST

The Hunter coast copped more than 70mm of rain last night, though sadly none of it made it to the drought stricken areas of the Upper Hunter. The latest high over the South East will still generate strong south easterly winds for the coast, with showers heavy at times. Shower activity is set to increase along the northern New South Wales and South East Queensland coasts, while easing for the Hunter coast. We can expect South East winds to continue right along the coast, while it remains dry and partly cloudy inland.

GAV’S WEATHER: MORE WET WEATHER FOR THE COAST

The East Coast Low will clear from the Tasman, with the latest high over the south east set to generate showers and moderate south easterly winds until Wednesday. We can expect the ordinary weather to continue for coastal communities, with it remaining cold, wet and windy. As you move west of the divide it’s set to remain fine and mostly sunny, however the cool conditions will stick around.

GAV’S WEATHER: EAST COAST LOW TO WELCOME WINTER

The East Coast Low sitting in the Tasman is generating a powerful swell, while conditions are all clear across the remainder of the nation. The system is set to generate strong southerly winds along the coast, with showers likely to affect from the Central Coast through to the Coffs Coast. It will remain cold, wet and wintry for the coast over the weekend, with the monster swell building. We can expect very cold mornings and more fine, sunny weather as you head further west. The Northern Rivers and South East Queensland will remain fine for the weekend, with the showers set to move in next week .
