The high will remain to the west of Tasmania on Friday, while a cold front approaches from the southwest and brushes southern Tasmania late in the evening. As the front moves away early Saturday, the high will slowly move to the south of the state, bringing settled weather and warmer conditions on Sunday as the high moves away to the east and a northeasterly stream develops.
