Weather Situation

A cold front over eastern Tasmania will weaken into a trough over the northeast tonight then move west through Bass Strait tomorrow morning as a high pressure system passes just south of the state, with the corresponding flow swinging to the northeast. This flow will then freshen on Wednesday as a trough approaches from the west, moving over King Island on Wednesday night with a complex low to then develop on the trough over on Monday morning. This low will deepen and spin a rain band, embedded in a northeasterly flow, over Tasmania throughout Thursday and Friday.
