By tonight the next high has already muscled in, and it will be strong enough to fend away a cold front on Saturday. The high will then slip into the Tasman Sea on Sunday, allowing north-westerlies to rise ahead of the next front, which is covered in the extended outlook below.

By mid-July models are starting to indicate that the atmosphere will develop a preference for some very large slow moving low and high pressure systems about Australian latitudes. This could go very well if a low sits to our east and drives in a southerly. Or it could almost kill us off if a low sits to our west and brings warm rain.
