Port Phillip Local Waters Forecast

No warnings for Victoria

Forecast issued at 5:10 am EDT on Monday 6 February 2023.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system south of the Bight extends a ridge across Victoria as a cold front to the south approaches Tasmania. The front will brush southern Tasmania on Monday morning, after which the ridge will move slowly southwards, to be lying across Tasmania by Tuesday night. This will allow humid easterly flow to develop over Victorian coastal waters from Wednesday as the high centre approaches Tasmania, crossing on Wednesday night and becoming established in the Tasman Sea on Thursday.
