A high to the south of Tasmania extends a ridge over the south and east of the state. The high will remain about southern and eastern Tasmania over the next few days, before moving over the southern Tasman Sea early Sunday. Meanwhile a low pressure centre will move over South Australia on Friday, while it will slowly move to the south of Adelaide during the weekend.
