A cold front will move across the Bight on Friday and weaken to a trough as it moves over western Victoria late on Saturday. The weak trough will likely move slowly across the remainder of the State on Sunday as the next high pressure system moves from the Bight towards western Victoria by late in the day. This high will slide south of Victoria and join with the southern Tasman high pressure system on Monday.
