A PERIOD of dynamic weather will affect NSW at the end of this week and early next week, with potential for rain, thunderstorms, damaging winds and damaging surf over a number of days.
A series of upper-level troughs will pass over eastern and south-eastern Australia between now and the middle of next week.
These broad pools of cold air aloft will interact with moisture-laden air from the Tasman and Coral Seas to cause cloudy, wet, and stormy weather over parts of NSW.
Rain will increase along the far north coast of NSW on Thursday and Friday, before showers and thunderstorms become more widespread across the state from late Friday and on Saturday.
Most districts should get rain on Saturday, although some southern and far western parts could miss out.
Rain and storms will contract towards eastern NSW from Sunday as a low pressure trough deepens near the coast, causing drier weather to return to the state's west.
A number of models also suggest that a low pressure system could develop within the coastal trough on Sunday or Monday.
This low has the potential to become a focal point for severe weather in parts of eastern NSW.
At this stage, it's difficult to predict how the trough and low will evolve as we head into the start of next week.
However, parts of eastern NSW could see heavy rain, blustery wind and large waves over a number of days.
This system will develop roughly two weeks after a similar weather pattern caused heavy rain, damaging winds and damaging surf along the NSW coast.
The details of this upcoming weather event are likely to change regularly during the rest of this week.
