Weather Situation

A slow moving high pressure system centred over the southern Tasman Sea extends a ridge across Tasmania to waters south of the Bight. On Thursday a new high pressure system will strengthen south of the Bight on Thursday then track slowly eastwards to be centred close to Tasmania by the weekend. A low pressure trough is likely to deepen off the central New South Wales coast on Friday and looks set to persist in that area over the weekend.
