WEATHER: FRESHENING SOUTHERLY

Inland is in for a fine and very comfortable weekend. Along the coast, a moderate southerly is going to kick in during Saturday and will push in a few isolated showers from Gosford to Port Stephens. There will also be an isolated shower or two further north during the mid to late afternoon. The winds will drop off on Sunday, and for most, it will be a fine weekend.

WEATHER: FRIENDLY CONDITIONS LOCALLY BUT NOT OVERSEAS

The cold nights and frosty mornings are going to continue, but the days will become milder as a large high moves across the region. South west to south east winds will ease across the weekend. The El Nino is already having a profound affect on global weather. The first super Typhoon Souldelor intensified, with core winds peaking at 360km/h. The storm is weakening, but will impact Taiwan heavily in the coming days, before moving on to East China. It will dump huge amounts of rain, causing extensive flooding and damage in both countries.

WEATHER: A VERY ICY MORNING

It was an incredibly cold start to the day. There were a few small records broken, but it was more to do with the wind chill factor that made it feel so cold. We have more very cold nights on the way. It’s going to remain fairly windy, so the wind chill factor will make sure it feels icy. Most of the days will be fine and partly cloudy, but lengthy sunny breaks will help a little. Still cold during the day, warming a little over the weekend.

GAV’S WEATHER: ONE OF THE WARMEST WEEKENDS OF THE WINTER ON THE WAY.

Over the past week a large pool of very warm air has built up over central Australia and it is headed our way. We’re in a very convenient cycle at the moment where the warm air shows up on the weekend ahead of the cold fronts that push through on Monday and Tuesdays. This next front could produce snow down to sea level for Tasmania on Sunday and there is a chance snow could fall on the Barringtons once again on Monday night. It will be fantastic for boating but surf will be very small. Enjoy the warmth. Picture: Jordan Heaton captured a different perspective of Newcastle Beach.

WEATHER: FINE, MILD RUN TO CONTINUE

We’re enjoying a lovely run of fine, mild winter days. Nights and early mornings are still chilly, but conditions have been warming up nicely through the day. The risk of showers along the northern New South Wales coast will remain very small. The fine run should continue across the weekend. We’ll just have a little more cloud at times.

WEATHER: ICY START TO THE DAY

Armidale dropped to -7 degrees this morning and the ice on the wind screen formed far and wide, including in suburbs around Newcastle which is quite rare. Melbourne is on track to record its coldest July in about 17 years and that is a good reflection of how chilly things have been across the south east corner of the nation. Expect another cold night with frosts, but overall things will be milder, as the southerly winds start to push in an isolated shower or two along the coast.

WEATHER: WINTER’S EVER-CHANGING MOOD

This winter has certainly seen some changes and that trend is continuing. Some okay rain fell across much of the broadcast region overnight and through to today. That system will clear, but another is going to move in quickly behind it, producing more inland falls with limited, isolated showers reaching the coastal towns. Conditions are set to clear over the weekend, but colder, drier air will replace the cloud cover.

WEATHER: THREE SUCCESSIVE FRONTS

The first of three fronts moved in today, engulfing the region in cloud which in turn kept temperatures down. Patchy light showers fell mostly across the North West. Rain from this front will spread across the region tomorrow, before clearing and making way for the next one, set to close in on Friday. This system will also produce some rain for the region including the North West. The third front will move through on Sunday, but little to no rain and very little cloud will accompany this one. It will drive in more icy, polar air, making sure that this winter remains cold.

WEATHER: SOME INLAND RAIN ON THE WAY

It’s been mild and sunny across the Hunter, North West and Mid North Coast today, but further north, the shower activity has been plentiful. Along the northern NSW coast, the showers will ease tomorrow but a few will linger around the boarder and south east QLD. To the west, the cloud will increase and late rain will start to move in tomorrow, spreading across the region overnight and into Thursday. A secondary front will push through on Friday into Saturday, before clearing for most of the weekend. This is all good news for the ski resorts who will see more snow, but for us, it does mean things will cool back down.
