Weather Situation

A high pressure system centred over the Tasman Sea combined with a low pressure trough over Western Australia is responsible for a northerly airstream becoming established over South Australia this weekend. The trough is forecast to move into the far west of the State late Saturday, then across the south later Sunday, reaching the far northeast on Monday. A ridge of high pressure will follow the trough, and remain across waters to the south of the Bight for most of next week.

Forecast for the rest of Saturday
