Weather Situation

Low pressure systems lie near the south coast and southeast of Tasmania, and will slowly track eastwards today leaving a cooler south to southwesterly stream in their wake. A weak ridge of high pressure will move over the state Thursday morning, before another area of low pressure moves in from the southwest, bringing light winds over Tasmania. Several lows will pass over and around the state during Friday, then consolidate to the northeast late in the evening, resulting in a fresh south to southwesterly airstream.
