Weather Situation

A high over the Southern Ocean extends a ridge across Tasmania. An area of high pressure will slowly cross Tasmania during Monday before weakening over the Tasman Sea on Tuesday as a northerly stream develops over the state. A low will slowly pass south of the Bight on Wednesday, and will combine with the high over the Tasman Sea to maintain the northerly flow, while a trough moves over Tasmania. The low will become stationary to the west of Tasmania on Thursday, with another trough to move over the state during the day.
