A low near the New South Wales south coast is moving over the Tasman Sea, while a high pressure system in the Bight extends a ridge across Tasmania. The high will move across Bass Strait during Saturday and into the Tasman Sea on Sunday, as a cold front approaches Victoria from the west. The front is expected to reach western Bass Strait later on Sunday, reaching the far eastern Bass Strait late on Monday. By this time a new high will have established itself in the Bight.
