Rain is predicted to ease in the early part of the week.

As the current high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea slowly heads towards New Zealand, a low pressure system that formed off Queensland coast is deepening and heading south towards the southern coast of New South Wales.

Depending on its position, gale force southerly winds and large surf to some coastal areas are predicted along the southern and central parts of the coast from early next week.
