Weather Situation

A cold front approaching from the southwest will reach the southwest coast before dawn Tuesday, and continue eastwards across the State, reaching northwestern and Central districts around midday and the far east by late afternoon. A weak ridge of high pressure will move across the State in the wake of the front before another cold front crossing the Southern Ocean reaches southwest Victoria late on Wednesday and crosses the State on Thursday. A high pressure system building over the Bight on Thursday will then extend a ridge towards NSW on Friday and maintain a west to southwesterly airstream over Victoria.
