Weather Situation

A front currently crossing Tasmania will weaken this evening, with a southwesterly flow to follow and persist over the next few days. A high pressure system south of Western Australia extends a ridge to the north of Tasmania. The high will move over the Bight tomorrow, with the ridge to persist to our north until Wednesday when it is expected to shift south to be over Tasmania. The high will slowly approach the state later on Wednesday, then move over the Tasman Sea on Thursday.
