Weather Situation

A high to the south of Tasmania in combination with a trough over the southeast of the mainland, directs a northeasterly airstream over the state. The high will transition into the Tasman Sea and remain there during Thursday and much of Friday while a series of troughs and cold fronts cross Tasmania. Another cold front is expected to cross Tasmania during Saturday morning, followed by a ridge extending from a new high entering the Bight. The ridge is expected to strengthen over Tasmania during Sunday.
