A high pressure system in the Bight will push a south to southwesterly change over most of NSW today while a low pressure trough in the northeast of the state gradually moves further northeastwards. The high will strengthen further on Tuesday and move eastwards. On Thursday a trough is expected to develop in in the easterlies off the NSW coast, with a low possibly developing off the coast.
