Weather Situation

A cold front approaching from the southwest will cross the state this morning. A high over the Bight will move near Adelaide and extend a ridge over Tasmania early Wednesday. As the high passes to the north, then away to the east on Thursday, a northwesterly stream will develop and freshen early Friday before a cold front crosses the state during the morning. A cooler southwesterly flow will follow, then tend westerly as another high moves over the Bight in the evening.

Forecast for the rest of Tuesday

Partly cloudy. Slight (30%) chance of a shower in the late morning and afternoon. Winds westerly 25 to 35 km/h. Daytime maximum temperatures around 14.
