WEATHER: SUN, SUN AND MORE SUN

Photo by Joyleen McDonald

We are in for a beaming week of sunshine. Today has been very warm and it will be even warmer in northern New South Wales and south east Queensland tomorrow. As we move through the week, the only difference will be a drop in temperature. Cool to cold, dry south westerly winds will be with us for some time including this weekend as the sunshine rolls on. Some very nice surfing conditions are on the way as well. Read More »

WEATHER: SUNSHINE ON THE WAY

There’ll be a foggy start tomorrow for most, before a warm, sunny day unfolds with north west to north east winds. Through the week, expect plenty of sunshine with cooler, drier, south westerly winds. This will give the coast a chance to dry out, while the drought rages on Inland. It will be a good week for surfers with fun waves to be had. Read More »

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 »

WEATHER: EAST COAST LOW LATEST

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. This one will be on the move producing flooding rain, heavy down pours and huge dangerous seas and swell as it tracks south over a period of five days. Read More »

WEATHER: ANOTHER EAST COAST LOW ON THE WAY

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 »

WEATHER WATCH: TAKE CARE AS WILD WEATHER BATTERS THE COAST

An intense east coast low is forming off the New South Wales Mid North Coast and will unleash the majority of its energy between the Central Coast and Manning, with the Hunter taking the biggest hit. A severe weather warning has been issued and flooding is expected on the Paterson and Williams Rivers. Localised flash flooding is also likely, while huge dangerous swell will develop with gale force winds reaching 100km/h along the Newcastle coast. The low is expected to retrogress or move back towards the coast which will intensify conditions. The wild weather will ease on Wednesday. Take care. Read More »

WEATHER: RAIN ON THE WAY

taree_weather_web

We’ve had a very warm week, ahead of a rain band that has already delivered record-breaking falls across parts of South Australia. Some locations have recorded their best April rain in 100 years of records. The cloud cover associated with this system could be seen in Newcastle and the Hunter today. Tomorrow it will spread further north and rain will start to fall Saturday night, before moving across the NBN broadcast region during Sunday. On Monday, an east coast low is expected to form and it could be a nasty one. East coast lows are at their most dangerous when they retrogress or move in a westerly direction back towards the coast once formed. The longer they sit on the coast the more damage they can do, especially if all its energy is released over one area, something that happens if ... Read More »

WEATHER: WEEKEND RAIN ON THE WAY

weathervallabeach

We’re experiencing some very warm temperatures across the region today. When it gets unseasonably warm you can almost guarantee some form a of a change is on the way. There is a mass of cloud making its way across the country at the moment. That high level cloud will start to steal the sunshine across the Hunter tomorrow. The cloud cover will spread north across the broadcast region during Saturday. A cold front will then collide with this warm, moist air, producing rain which will start to fall Saturday night. This will make for a wet Sunday for everyone. Widespread moderate to heavy falls are likely, very similar to Easter Saturday in fact. An east coast low is expected to form Monday into Tuesday, whipping up another big swell, strong winds and coastal rain. Read More »

WEATHER: A CONSISTENT WEEK AHEAD

This weekend we will see partly cloudy skies and a few brief showers roll in across the coast, as the inland areas of the Upper Hunter and North West remain dry. Temperatures will be around the mid-20s for most and this trend will continue into next week. The big swell on the coast will abate, but conditions will remain quite rough. Read More »
