Forecast issued at 4:25 pm EST on Tuesday 7 April 2020.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system just south of the Bight extends a weak ridge over Tasmania and a weak trough lies over the northeast. A southerly flow will persist for the remainder of today and Wednesday, with light winds and clear skies into Thursday as the high moves over Tasmania. The high will move away to the northeast, allowing a northerly stream to develop later on Thursday, then freshen on Friday ahead of a cold front to cross the state in the evening. A second and more vigorous front is expected to cross early Saturday, associated with a low passing to the south, and a cold and windy southwesterly flow to follow.
