BoM Sydney (Coastal) Marine Weather Forecast


Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) Weather Forecasts

Weather Situation for Sydney Enclosed Waters
An East Coast Low is centred near the Hunter Coast within a broad trough, while a strong high over the Great Australian Bight extends a ridge to the southern Tasman Sea. The combination of these features is generating vigorous winds and large seas over southern and central parts of the New South Wales coast. The East Coast Low is expected to weaken during Monday, with weather conditions gradually easing in response, although the trough will linger on the northern half of the coast through to Tuesday. The high is expected to drift across southeast Australia to the Tasman Sea mid-week, after which there are indications that a new trough may affect the region.
