Tasmania Forecast

View the current warnings for Tasmania

Forecast issued at 5:00 am EST on Monday 24 July 2017.

Weather Situation

A deep low well to the southeast of Tasmania and a high over New South Wales are combining to direct a west to southwesterly flow over Tasmania that will ease and shift northwesterly overnight as a ridge crosses the state and a shallow low moves over the Bight. This low will extend a series of trough over the state on Tuesday and early Wednesday as it passes just south of the state, with another ridge to then move over the state on Wednesday night. A northerly flow will then freshen on Thursday as the ridge moves over the Tasman Sea and a cold front approaches from the west.

Forecast for the rest of Monday

Areas of morning frost. Showers about the west, far south and Bass Strait Islands, falling as snow to around 800 metres. Fine elsewhere. West to southwesterly winds.

Tuesday 25 July

Showers extending statewide during the morning, though little reaching the east coast. Snowfalls to around 1000 metres in the morning. Fresh and gusty north to northwesterly winds.

Wednesday 26 July

Showers, mostly clearing the north and east in the afternoon. Areas of morning fog. Snowfalls, lowering to around 600 metres in the south. Fresh and gusty west to northwesterly winds about the north in the morning. Southwesterly winds otherwise.

Thursday 27 July

Areas of morning frost. Possible morning showers in the west. Fine elsewhere until showers develop about the north and west later. Light winds becoming north to northwesterly.
