Weather Situation

A ridge extends across the state from a high pressure system in the Bight with generally westerly flow across the state. The flow will tend northwesterly over Tasmania tomorrow as the next cold front approaches, with the front to cross the state on Saturday. A colder southwesterly change follows the front ahead of a ridge of high pressure which will lie over Tasmania later on Saturday. The trough lingers about the far northeast and the ridge slowly moves north during Sunday with winds turning westerly late in the day. Winds remain westerly on Monday with the ridge lying over Victoria.
