WEATHER: WEEKEND OUTLOOK

It’s going to be a fine, warm start to the weekend, with some high level, scattered cloud passing over. The chance of showers for north east NSW and south east QLD will be very small. On Sunday, a southerly change will reach the Central Coast and Hunter before pushing north. Again, this change will be a weak one, but there is going to some rain in it with moderate to heavy falls possible into early next week. The areas that have a greater chance of seeing heavier rain will be the Central Coast and Newcastle. On Monday, the potential for heavy falls will move further north along the coast. Inland across the very dry North West will only see small amounts of rain, but isolated thunderstorms might help some properties.

WEATHER: A FINE START TO THE WEEKEND

It’s partly cloudy along the coast today, but the shower activity has eased. Things will fine up even further across the Central Coast, Hunter and MNC. For now, it is still dry inland across the North West. The north eastern corner of NSW and south east QLD will still receive the occasional isolated shower. From Sunday, a new stronger southerly will move up the coast and the shower activity will return, with the likelihood of heavy isolated falls at times, to begin the new week. We will finally see some rain fall inland, but totals will be very small and patchy.
