Weather Situation

A high in the Tasman Sea directs a hot and humid northerly airstream over Victoria, while an inland trough lies over South Australia. A cold front moving through the Bight will connect with the trough overnight, and they will cross western and central Victoria on Thursday afternoon and evening, clearing to the far east on Friday morning. Cooler southwesterly airflow will extend over Victoria behind the front on Friday as another high crosses the Bight. This high will move over Victoria on Saturday, then become established in the Tasman Sea on Sunday as a weak cold front approaches Tasmania.
