Weather Situation

A low pressure system approaching northwestern Victoria currently extends a deepening trough across the west of the state. The trough will move eastwards on Saturday, connecting with a cold front sweeping across Tasmania, and eventually clearing Victoria late in the day. A large high pressure system crossing the Bight will extend a ridge across Tasmania on Sunday, while a low pressure trough develops over northeastern Victoria. The high will pass south of Tasmania late Monday and early Tuesday while maintaining a ridge over the Bight and an easterly flow over Victoria.
