No warnings for Tasmania

Weather Situation

A trough lies over Tasmania with high pressure systems to the east and west. A weak cold front will cross southern parts of the state Saturday morning and will be quickly replaced by a ridge of high pressure. The associated high will move over Tasmania early Sunday and then to the east, allowing a northeasterly stream to develop. The stream will freshen and persist on Monday, bringing warmer temperatures to the west and south. A prefrontal trough on Tuesday is expected to bring unsettled weather to the state before a cold front crosses in the evening.
