Forecast issued at 10:06 pm EST on Friday 22 September 2017.

Weather Situation

A northerly stream lies over Tasmania with an embedded warm front to cross overnight. This is associated with a complex area of low pressure, to slowly track eastwards during Saturday, with a low nearing the southwest coast late. As several lows move south of Tasmania on Sunday, and associated troughs cross the state, a gusty west to northwesterly airstream will prevail, then tend cooler southwesterly on Monday as the lows weaken and move over the Tasman Sea. A high to the west of Tasmania is expected to move to the north during Tuesday.
