Weather Situation

A warm front will move over Tasmania today, with associated lows to pass near the south of the state, maintaining a northwesterly stream. As the area of low pressure moves away to the east early Wednesday, and a trough crosses the state, a southwesterly stream will then follow. A high to the north will extend a ridge over Tasmania overnight, then track eastwards on Thursday, allowing a northwesterly stream to redevelop. A cold front is expected to cross early Friday, followed by another ridge later in the day.
