A vigorous cold front approaching from the west will cross Tasmania during the afternoon and evening. A second front crosses the state early on Wednesday morning, resulting in a strong and gusty west to southwesterly wind flow. The winds will then ease Wednesday evening as a ridge of high pressure extends to the north of the state and persist throughout Thursday.
