Southerly buster is moving through Sydney and central NSW

Thursday 5th November 2020

A strong southerly buster is sweeping through the greater Sydney, Hunter and Mid North Coast region of NSW during Thursday as a low pressure system deepens off the NSW coastline.

Wind gusts are expected to average 60-70km/h across the coastal fringe during Thursday, with locally damaging gusts to 90km/h possible, particularly for exposed coastal locations and elevated terrain.

A large southerly swell will also develop throughout the day, with waves in the 3-5m range expected just offshore.

Winds should gradually ease from the south overnight Thursday and into Friday as this low rapidly moves east towards New Zealand. A severe weather warning is in place for damaging winds.
