A building ridge in the wake of the change will then maintain fresh SE winds across the region on Friday.
Tuesday looks like being a repeat performance of Saturday in the south.
Let’s divide the region into two for the weekend. South of Coffs Harbour, and north Coffs Harbour.
The only saving grace is Saturday morning - and only in the Lower Mid North Coast - where a weak, shallow and ultimately dissipating trough is likely to arrest the northerly flow in that next of the woods through the morning.
The headline says it all!
Strong northerly winds will write off surf conditions just about everywhere on Saturday.
Thursday is the pick of the forecast period, mainly due to a strengthening northerly airstream that’s going to ruin conditions at most locations from Friday thru’ the weekend.
