Frederick Henry Bay and Norfolk Bay Boating Forecast

No warnings for Tasmania

Forecast issued at 5:00 am EDT on Saturday 17 November 2018.

Weather Situation

A trough currently over northeastern Tasmania will move west over Bass Strait today as a high pressure system moves just west of the state, before passing just south to the state overnight. The high will then continue moving southeast on Sunday and Monday while maintaining a ridge to the north over the Tasman Sea, which will combine with a trough approaching from the west to direct a warming, freshening northerly flow over Tasmania. The trough will then move over Tasmania on Tuesday as a cold front approaches from the west.
