Sydney Weather : More Severe Winter Weather Forecast
Sydney weather is about to become peak winter, with high winds, big swell, rain and snow coming back to parts of New South Wales.
According for BOM, Wintry weather on its way for NSW.
Cooler temps and snow are expected tonight on the Alps, before pushing northwards to the Central Tablelands during tomorrow and possibly as far north as the Northern Tablelands on Monday night.
There will be strong winds in Sydney with massive swell to impact our Sydney beaches.
Large waves and strong winds are expected for coastal parts from late Monday and into Tuesday as a low develops over the Tasman Sea.
There’s a boating warning in place as big swells could cause havoc for people on the Ocean.
Here is the latest warning:
Sydney weather Situation: A front crossing the state today will deepen into a low pressure system off the southern half of the coast later Monday. A trough associated with the low will sweep from south to north during Tuesday, generating vigorous southerly winds and dangerous surf.
DAMAGING WINDS averaging 60 to 70 km/h with peak gusts in excess of 90 km/h are expected to develop along the coastal fringe in the far south from late Monday and extend north during Tuesday. Winds are expected to ease from the south later Tuesday.
HEAVY SURF, in excess of 5 metres in the surf zone, may lead to localised damage and coastal erosion along the south coast from late Monday, then extend further north during Tuesday. People should stay well away from the surf and surf exposed areas. South facing beaches will be the most affected.
Locations which may be affected include Seal Rocks, Newcastle, Gosford, Sydney, Wollongong and Batemans Bay.
The State Emergency Service advises that people should:
* Move vehicles under cover or away from trees.
* Secure or put away loose items around your house, yard and balcony.
* Keep at least 8 metres away from fallen power lines or objects that may be energised, such as fences.
* Report fallen power lines to either Ausgrid (131 388), Endeavour Energy (131 003), Essential Energy (132 080) or Evoenergy (131 093) as shown on your power bill.
* For emergency help in floods and storms, ring your local SES Unit on 132 500.
