A trough is bringing a southerly change to the northern waters today, while a ridge of high pressure extends along the New South Wales coast in its wake. Little change to this pattern is expected with southeast to northeasterly winds predominating along the coast for the coming days. Later on the weekend or during the new week, there is the potential for a coastal trough to extend from the Coral Sea into the N
ew South Wales northern waters.
