Please be aware
Wind forecasts are averages. Wind gusts can be 40 per cent stronger than the forecast, and stronger still in squalls and thunderstorms.
A high pressure system south of the Bight extends a ridge across Victoria as a cold front to the south approaches Tasmania. The front will brush southern Tasmania on Monday morning, after which the ridge will move slowly southwards, to be lying across Tasmania by Tuesday night. This will allow humid easterly flow to develop over Victorian coastal waters from Wednesday as the high centre approaches Tasmania, crossing on Wednesday night and becoming established in the Tasman Sea on Thursday.
