Weather Situation

A ridge of high pressure lies to the south of Victoria as a trough over NSW extends south over western Victoria. The trough will cross central and eastern Victoria this evening as a cold front moves over the Southern Ocean. The front is expected to clip southern Victoria on Monday as a large high pressure system develops south of the Bight. A cool south to southwesterly airstream will persist on Tuesday and Wednesday as the high remains stationary south of the Bight and extends a ridge eastwards across southern Victoria. The high will slowly move eastwards during Thursday, as another front crosses Tasmania.
