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 AHEAD OF A CHILLY WEEKEND

A wintry front is making it’s way across The Bight! Today eastern Australia was largely under a blanket of cloud. The system crossing The Bight will cause Victoria and the south east to see some wet, windy weather with some nice snow on the way for the ski resorts. Another front is due to move in behind it. This front will be a vigorous one dropping temperatures further while producing a lot more snow and rain. Tomorrow will be fine with westerly winds and increased sunshine. I say make the most of it before the cold rolls in over the weekend!

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: HEAVY COASTAL RAIN CLEARING

Solid accumulations in the east, especially in between Byron and Coffs. Minnie Water, on the North Coast, received the top drop, with over 100mm. The coast copped more rain overnight. The high still over the Tasman will generate light, moist easterly winds for the coast. The showers will ease as they contract to NE NSW and QLD. The shower activity that has been contracting northward along the coast will clear for a couple of days. There’s a weekend change that will produce widespread rain, so make the most of the clearing conditions. It will remain dry inland west of the Divide until the weekend change arrives. Only light fall will come down across the NW.

GAV’S WEATHER: MORE WET FOR THE COAST

The New South Wales coast has copped more rain and there still more to come. That latest high over the south east will still generate moist easterly winds for the coast and showers will be still heavy at times as they contract to north east New South Wales and Queensland. So more wet weather for the coast but conditions will ease for the Newcastle region as the heavier falls move north. The North West will again remain mostly dry with partly cloudy skies.
