Explanatory Notes
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea will continue moving east as a weak
cold front approaches from the west. The front will cross Bass Strait on
Thursday morning as another high rapidly approaches from the west, with the
high forecast to cross Tasmania overnight into Friday. The high will then
continue moving east across the Tasman Sea as another front approaches
Tasmania. This front will cross Bass Strait during Saturday as a low pressure
trough develops over western Victoria, with the trough moving away to the east
on Sunday as another high rapidly approaches western Bass Strait.
