What is the weather doing?

A weak ridge extends over northern waters. The ridge may strengthen a little over the weekend as a high pressure system moves across the Great Australian Bight into the Tasman Sea. Today’s winds are southeasterly about 10 knots increasing to 10 to 15 knots by late morning while tomorrow winds will be south to southeasterly 10 to 15 knots turning east to southeasterly during the afternoon. For Sunday, expect winds south to southeasterly 10 to 15 knots turning east to southeasterly in the afternoon.
