Explanatory Notes A weak ridge of high pressure will persist over Victoria during this weekend. Isolated showers are likely near the western and central coast Saturday with light to moderate southerly winds. Clearer skies will prevail inland and temperatures will be close to average. A weak upper trough will cause showers to extend over most of Victoria on and south of the ranges during Sunday. Fine and mostly sunny weather will continue in the north. By Monday winds will begin to tend warmer northerly and freshen as a cold front approaches from the west with fine and mostly sunny weather through the day. Isolated showers will develop near the western border late evening as the front reaches the west of the State. The front will cross the State during Tuesday with warm to hot and fresh to strong northerly wind shifting cooler southwest. Showers are likely on and south of the ranges with the chance of isolated thunderstorms. Showers will contract to the east and the southwest coast midweek in a moderating southwest airstream. The next high will cross the State Thursday and become established in the Tasman Sea Friday with temperatures rising as mild southerly flow is replaced by warmer northerlies. Conditions should be fine and mostly sunny.
