The weather forecast for the weekend is looking pretty good. There is a bit of high level cloud tracking across the country so we might see some high wisps above us but we are not going to receive any rain from it.
A front is passing to the south. They have all been wedged to the south due to that big belt of high pressure that has been sitting over the mid latitudes. That is going to generate some lovely westerly winds and some slightly warmer air so it will be comfortable during the day, but the nights are still quite cool. We have seen those morning fog patches and are still getting some frosts on the ranges. There are some negative temperatures around Armidale, Walcha and Woolbrook. Earlier this week Woolbrook dipped to -7 but those overnight minimums won’t be as severe but we will still see some frosts.
The swell is really dying off at the moment and the high tide is in the morning and that will swallow up that really small swell. So rock shelves, beach breaks, shallow banks will be the go, and maybe some reef breaks and try and utilise that tide but it is all looking to be about a metre.

Erika Smart has reminded us why it’s worth to getup early before the sunrises. This was taken at Terrigal Beach on the Central Coast. Dry, clear skies have dominated May so far.
