Explanatory Notes A weakening low pressure system over western Bass Strait will move slowly eastwards to be near northeastern Tasmania on Saturday morning then dissipate to a trough as it moves further east. A high pressure system crossing South Australia will move over New South Wales during the weekend and will extend a weak ridge southwards over Victoria on Saturday and Sunday morning. A weakening cold front will cross the Bight to affect Tasmania on Sunday night and a northwesterly airstream will strengthen over Victoria on Monday as another cold front crosses Bight waters. This front will weaken as it crosses southern Victoria and Bass Strait on Tuesday.
