Weather Situation

A stationary high in the Tasman Sea directs a north to northeasterly stream over Tasmania, which will freshen today as a cold front crosses the Bight. The front will weaken on Friday and a low is expected to develop near King Island in the evening, with another low to the west of Tasmania. This complex area of low pressure is expected to pass over the state on Saturday, with a cooler westerly stream to follow. A weak ridge of high pressure will then drift over the state on Sunday, while another cold front approaches from the west in the evening.
