Forecast models diverged yesterday in their longer term outlook for the period Jan 2-5. 

The latest models indicate the following:

A pre-frontal trough with rain followed by a front with a S-SE wind change will move across NSW later today and tomorrow, SAT 30.

High pressure will follow and wind will shift SE-NE during SUN 31.

Part of the major trough across inland NSW will shift off the NSW coast on MON 01 and lay off the coast TUE 02 generating a weak S-SE wind flow along the coast. On WED 03, a front will move up the NSW with stronger S-SE winds through THU 04. 

Weak high pressure on FRI 05 will see those SE wind ease and shift SE-NE on the coast but remain SW-SE well offshore mid Tasman.
