WEATHER: EAST COAST LOW LATEST

East coast low

We are now entering the worst period, as the east coast low reaches its peak and begins to track south along the coast. Heavy rain causing flooding, strong to gale force winds and huge dangerous seas and swell will track south overnight into tomorrow. It’s expected to reach the Hunter by Saturday afternoon. Once the centre of the low passes, conditions will ease quickly in the north. The system will clear during Sunday. Boating and surfing is not recommended, until the centre of the low passes.

WEATHER: THE LOW DOWN

ECL

The east coast low is still yet to form properly. There are two troughs deepening and both will merge tomorrow to form another intense east coast low. It will hug south east Queensland and north east New South Wales, hitting them the hardest. Gale force winds and huge seas will accompany this storm. The worst of it will be Friday into Saturday, before easing on Sunday. Rain will spin in across the northern ranges to the North West plains. Showers will be heavy at times and will extend south, but the Central Coast and Hunter should largely be spared by this system. Read More »
