North West Coast Forecast

No warnings for Tasmania

Forecast issued at 4:25 pm EST on Monday 25 May 2015.

Weather Situation

A broad high centred over southeastern Australia will remain near stationary over the next couple days before moving eastwards across the Tasman Sea on Wednesday. A ridge of high pressure over Tasmania will weaken tonight as a weak front clips the south of the state, with the ridge to shift eastwards late on Tuesday as a cold front approaches from the Bight. The front is expected to cross Tasmania during Wednesday, embedded in a northwesterly airstream, with another cold front to cross late on Thursday. Yet another cold front is expected south of the Bight late on Friday.

Forecast for the rest of Monday

Mostly clear. Light winds.
