Weather Situation

A ridge of high pressure over eastern Bass Strait will move into the Tasman Sea tonight. A low pressure system will approach from the west overnight before moving to the south of the State on Wednesday as an associated trough crosses Bass Strait, moving through western Victorian coastal waters in the afternoon and eastern coastal waters in the late evening. The trough is expected clear to the east of Bass Strait by early Thursday morning as the low pressure system moves into the southern Tasman Sea. A ridge of high pressure is then expected to strengthen over northern parts of Victoria during Thursday before a cold front approaches from the west later on Friday. This front is forecast to move through Bass Strait during Saturday morning.
