A large high pressure system lies well south of Tasmania extending a ridge over western Victoria. The high pressure ridge will move slowly across Victoria on Monday and Tuesday as a new low pressure system develops over the Bight. The low and associated trough will move closer to Victoria during Wednesday and will cross the State on Thursday.
