Stunning weekend on Australia's east coast

Ben McBurney, Saturday December 7, 2013 - 12:42 EDT

A broad region of high pressure is creating the quintessential conditions in the region with sunny and warm weather throughout.

Along the New South Wales coast, temperatures will push into the low-to-mid 20s on Saturday, however by Sunday they should begin to rise into the mid-to-high 20s.

Sydney can look forward to a top of 25 degrees on Saturday, and 27 degrees on Sunday.

In Queensland, temperatures will be in the high 20s to low 30s along much of the coast which will be moderated by gusty afternoon seabreezes.

Brisbane can expect to see a comfortable top of 27 degrees on Saturday, and 28 degrees on Sunday.

Only QLD's tropical coast can expect showers this weekend, however they should be separated by plenty of sunshine, while daytime temperatures will still push into the low 30s.

However, those keen to head down to the beach to enjoy the stunning weather should be weary of large surf, with anywhere from the Gold Coast right down to the NSW South Coast likely to see powerful conditions. While this will be a hit with surfers, others should remember to swim between the flags.

The warm weather will persist into early next week, however conditions will become unsettled from about mid-week as a low pressure trough moves over the region.
