So. we may have cyclo-genesis .
now to read up on why BOM ^ said it's not an ECL.
" They develop between 25˚ south and 40˚ south and within 5˚ of the Australian coastline "
I'll need a cup of tea for that linkGFS was thinking it will be a shallow warm core. So yeah genesis. Same as when polar lows core warms.

BLUSTERY WINDS AND HEAVY SEAS ALONG PARTS OF THE NSW COAST FROM TUESDAY

Winds are expected to gradually ease during Wednesday.
VERY HEAVY SURF which may lead to localised damage and coastal erosion is possible from Tuesday afternoon. South and southeast facing parts of the coast are most at risk.
Beach conditions in these areas could be dangerous and people should stay well away from the surf and surf exposed areas.
A Hazardous Surf Warning is also current along the entire New South Wales Coast.
Surf conditions are expected to ease from Thursday.
Locations which may be affected include Sydney, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong, Port Macquarie, The Entrance, Foster and Kiama.
The State Emergency Service advises that people should:
* Move vehicles under cover or away from trees.
* Secure or put away loose items around your house, yard and balcony.
* Keep at least 8 metres away from fallen power lines or objects that may be energised, such as fences.

As the night goes on and the low forms, I'm trying to work out where it will plant its bum.
Going by sat pics, it looks like it will be somewhere between Port Mc and Coffs.
BOM AWS hPa pressures seem to be lowest around that region as well atm, although none of the figures are particularly low.
Winds are currently strongest on the South Coast?
Am I on the right track or am I missing something here?
You are in the right area but I think it is already a fair way offshore hence the rain downgrades for the Hunter and Sydney etc over the last few days.
You can see a hook starting to form offshore on the below satellite images.
The MSLP is showing a secondary trough/low closer to the coast which is what was triggering the stalled stormline earlier but we will have to wait for the rotation to build before the showers start pushing inland.
