Weather Situation

A broad high centred over southeast Australia will remain near stationary over the next few days before moving eastwards across the Tasman Sea on Wednesday. A ridge of high pressure over Tasmania will weaken late tomorrow as a warm front clips the south of the state, with the ridge to shift eastwards late on Tuesday as a cold front approaches from the Bight. The front is expected to pass over the state during Wednesday, embedded in a northwesterly airstream, with another cold front to cross late on Thursday.
