No warnings for Tasmania

Forecast issued at 4:05 pm EDT on Monday 11 December 2017.

Weather Situation

An area of high pressure lies to the north of Tasmania, with centres to the northwest and northeast of the state, producing a westerly flow. The high to the northeast will become dominant on Tuesday as it slowly moves over the Tasman Sea. A warm to hot northerly stream will develop on Wednesday, ahead of a pair of cold fronts which will cross Tasmania early and late Thursday as the flow shifts westerly. A weak ridge will extend north of Tasmania on Friday with the westerly winds continuing as the next front approaches from the west.
