Weather Situation

A high [1035 hPa] near Tasmania extends a ridge over the southern waters. The high will slowly move east over the next several days, weakening from Tuesday. A trough off the Capricornia coast will move further offshore during today. Ex-Tropical Cyclone Gina is located east of New Caledonia, and is forecast to weaken further as it moves south. The remnants of the system may combine with the high to generate a brief period of significant southeasterly swell about the southeast coast during Tuesday.
