Weather Situation

A high to the south of the Bight extends a ridge south of Tasmania, pushing a cool southerly stream over the state. The ridge will push over southern parts of the state today, while a weak trough develops about the north. The main high centre will persist to the southwest on Monday, then move away to the southeast on Tuesday, maintaining an easterly flow over Tasmania. A low is expected to be positioned well east of Flinders Island early Wednesday before moving southwards and causing the high to weaken.

Forecast for the rest of Sunday

Light showers about the west, south and east coasts mostly clearing during the afternoon. Fine elsewhere apart from early showers about the northeast. Morning frost inland. Fresh south to southeasterly winds, easing.
