Weather Situation

A trough over western Victoria is expected to intensify into a low pressure system over western Victoria later today. The intense low will move into central Bass Strait and then quickly move away to the southeast during Friday as a high south of WA extends a ridge towards Victoria. The ridge will persist over Victoria for several days as the high drifts eastwards to be near Adelaide by Saturday night, then over the Tasman Sea by Monday morning.
