Weather Situation

A weak high pressure system lies over the eastern the Tasman Sea. Meanwhile, a low south of the Bight will move slowly east during the next few days, with a series of associated troughs crossing southeast Australia. The next significant cold front is expected to affect the region during Friday and Saturday, as the low moves across Bass Strait and situates itself off the New South Wales south coast. This low is then expected to move southwards during Sunday and Monday.
