Weather Situation

A northerly flow will continue this evening ahead of a trough which will move over Tasmania tonight, with a front to cross the state during tomorrow and weaken to a trough about the east coast late. The trough will linger about the northeast of Tasmania during Friday, as high develops over the Bight and extends a ridge across Tasmania, while another front brushes the south of the state during the day. The high will move then over Tasmania on Saturday, and out to the east of the state on Sunday.
