Weather Situation

A high pressure system centred over western Bass Strait extends a ridge across Victoria. The ridge and associated high pressure system will continue moving slowly east, reaching eastern Bass Strait late Monday. A low pressure trough across Western Australia will extend across South Australia on Monday and approach western Bass Strait later on Tuesday. This trough will cross Victorian coastal waters on Wednesday ahead of a cold front which will enter western Bass Strait on Wednesday night. The front will cross the remainder of Bass Strait early on Thursday as another high pressure system rapidly develops over Victoria. The high will move over the NSW coast by Thursday night, establishing a northerly airstream over Bass Strait.
