A strong upper trough and associated deep, cold airmass will approach Victoria and S.A. on Thursday, developing another complex low offshore southwest of Victoria. The upper trough and cold airmass will move across Victoria on Friday as the main low centre deepens over eastern Bass Strait, then slowly moves eastwards to the Tasman Sea on Saturday.
