Photo by Ben Creber

The second east coast low is set to form in the coming days. Moist onshore winds will feed a deepening trough sitting over the eastern states, so coastal showers will begin to ramp up from tomorrow. The low will form Thursday into Friday, hitting the south east corner of Queensland first, before moving south across the Northern Rivers and onto the Mid North Coast during Saturday. The tail of the system is expected to hit the Hunter on Sunday before clearing Monday. This low is a different monster to the one that hit the Hunter and Central Coast last week.

Another east coast low is expected to form this week. It will be a different monster to last week’s storm and could affect a larger area, extending across northern New South Wales and south east Queensland. It will then move south and onto the Mid North Coast and Hunter. A large high currently sits over the nation, feeding a trough deepening over the eastern states with moist onshore winds. This trough is likely to spin into an east coast low later in the week, producing more strong winds and heavy seas. While all east coast lows have similarities, they are also different so this will be another potentially dangerous storm and one to be monitored in the coming days. Read More »
