Lower East Coastal Waters Forecast: Wineglass Bay to Tasman Island

No warnings for Tasmania

Forecast issued at 4:05 pm EST on Tuesday 27 June 2017.

Weather Situation

A high over Victoria extends into the Tasman Sea, while a weakening cold front approaches Tasmania. The front will dissipate as it moves over the state later on Wednesday, but another stronger front to cross on Thursday afternoon will bring an active, very cold southwesterly stream in its wake. A high over the Bight will then track eastwards, expected to lie over Victoria on Friday and extend a ridge over Tasmania, allowing the stream to become light.
