Forecast for the Northern Rivers
According to the Bureau of Meteorology, a slow-moving high pressure system to the west of Tasmania is extending a ridge along the coast, maintaining a southeasterly airstream over the state during the next couple of days.
"Winds will gradually become east to northeasterly from about mid week as the high moves into the Tasman Sea, then a front looks set to cross the state toward the end of the week," BoM states.
