The east coast low has formed to the south and is hammering the New South Wales south coast and Illawarra. Over 130mm has already come down at Ulladulla causing flooding. The low will track slightly to the north before pulling away from the coast over the next 24 hours. Overnight and tomorrow morning winds will increase and a burst of heavy rain and strong winds will hit the Central Coast and Newcastle. There will be the risk of flash flooding and damage as the system passes over this part of the region. Seas and swell will increase quickly becoming dangerous overnight. Further north and inland there will be some shower activity for the Mid North Coast and southern parts of the North West. For ... Read More »

WEATHER UPDATE: WILD WEATHER ON THE WAY

Mick Lynch weather Nords Wharf

Today a large line of storms made its way across New South Wales and southern Queensland. It is the beginning of a wild couple of days of weather, especially for the Central Coast and Newcastle regions. A huge trough line stretches over eastern and northern Australia. An intense low is going to form on this line. During Tuesday the winds will increase and so to the rain as we move into the evening, continuing to build into Wednesday. The hardest hit areas appear to be in between the Illawarra and Forster. The east coast low will produce large, dangerous seas and heavy rain with flash flooding likely. Winds will become strong enough to be damage-causing. The system will clear by Thursday, until then, things will be unsettled with widespread storm development expected tomorrow. Read More »

WEATHER UPDATE: A LITTLE INLAND RAIN

Heather Gartshre Narrabri  weather

Tomorrow is going to be warm to hot thanks to a northerly airflow seabreeze which will fan the coast. Conditions are also going to become unsettled with inland showers across the north west and afternoon storms developing on the northern ranges thanks to a slow moving trough. That’s going to linger into next week so more rain is expected, with better falls on the way during the early to middle part of next week. It will remain fine for the Hunter to kick start the weekend. Things are looking good for boating, but beware of the gusty afternoon seabeezes. Only small waves for surfers, with the northern corners best. Read More »

WEATHER UPDATE: OCTOBER RETROSPECTIVE

The mercury climbed into the 30s on numerous occasions, making it one of the hottest Octobers on record. This October things have been very warm once again with very little rain. Tomorrow will be warm to hot, fine and mostly sunny. From the weekend there is some rain in the forecast for the dry north west, which will continue into the middle of next week. Read More »

WEATHER UPDATE: LUNAR ECLIPSE TIME

There is a large blanket of cloud sitting over Newcastle on this Wednesday afternoon. The good news is this will clear to partly cloudy skies tonight. The bad news is the blanket is slowly moving north and will shut down the chance to see the Lunar Eclipse on parts of the Mid North Coast. Viewing inland and further north on the northern New South Wales coast and south east Queensland looks pretty good. The benefit of some cloud can make the eclipse even more intense due to the lining of the clouds reflecting a slight red glow at times. It is a long process, so be patient if it is blocked by cloud. Most locations should get at least a glimpse as the cloud cover likes to break up at night. The whole process takes a number of hours: Eclipse ... Read More »

WEATHER UPDATE: SOUTHERLY CHANGE

¬†PHOTO: A stunning shot of Nobbys break wall at Stockton, captured by Glen Cox. A southerly change has been working its way up the New South Wales coast today, arriving in Newcastle at 1pm. It has cooled things slightly for the coastal fringe but will produce very little in the way of wet weather. Tonight the change will continue moving north, arriving on the Gold Coast tomorrow. From the eastern slopes of the Great Divide to the beaches, there will be some patchy shower activity during the day with partly cloudy skies. The change is not strong enough to clear the heat inland so the North West will remain very warm to hot and dry. There’s a better system headed our way which should produce better rain over the weekend. Read More »

JETS INTERNATIONALS UNITE FOR PROMO SHOOT

The Jets’ Taylor Regan isn’t sure whether he’ll play in defence or midfield this season, but he is confident he’s the fittest he’s ever been. The Dudley-Redhead junior joined his international teammates and surfing legend Mark Richards at NBN today, to shoot the club’s new promotional video. Regan says the likes of Marcos Flores and Jeronimo are vital to the Jets’ success. “I don’t think him and Marcos have a lot to prove, I think Australia has seen they’re fantastic footballers. You add that to Jonny Steele, who’s been in America for years. He epitomises Newcastle, his attitude and his work rate. He’s ruthless and he wants to win.” (AUDIO IN PARTS) Read More »

WEATHER UPDATE: GREAT SCHOOL HOLIDAY WEATHER

TA_TOURISM_FIGURES

We will see a pulse of showers push in across the coast to kick start the final weekend of September. After that we will see a run of fine, sunny and warm to hot days – perfect for the school holidays. There’s hardly any cloud over the nation so the centre is heating up. There’s a big front pushing in across the south west of Western Australia and this will help push the heat our way as we move into the early part of next week. Things are looking good for surfers with a new pulse in the swell. Southern corners best tomorrow, but the mornings are the pick as the winds swing offshore on an abating swell. Read More »

WEATHER UPDATE: RAIN!

A rain band is making its way across New South Wales and will hit the region tomorrow. Cloud will increase and rain will fall with storms possible, especially in the afternoon on the ranges and to the north. The system won’t hang around for long clearing by the weekend, but by then most locations will have received something. Falls wont be too impressive, but Spring rain is desperately needed inland.
