Byron Coast: Point Danger to Wooli

Issued at: 26/09/2017 10:35.

A trough remains almost stationary on the New South Wales Mid North Coast, with northerly winds to its north. During the morning, a southerly change will combine with the trough to reach the Queensland border, establishing southerly winds throughout. In the wake of the change, a weak high pressure system will move from south Australia across to the Tasman Sea by Wednesday, causing coastal winds to shift northerly. Northerly winds will strengthen during Wednesday ahead of the next front, which is expected on Thursday or Friday.
