Forecast issued at 5:40 am EDT on Sunday 5 February 2023.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system south of the Bight has begun to extend a ridge across Victoria, as a strong low pressure system moves away and into the Tasman Sea slowly bringing more mild conditions to the Victoria from Sunday. The ridge will remain over Victoria during Sunday and Monday, then gradually move southwards to lie across Tasmania by Tuesday night. This will allow humid easterly flow to develop over Victoria on Wednesday as an inland trough extends from New South Wales into northern parts of the state.

Forecast for the rest of Sunday

Cloudy. Slight (20%) chance of a shower near the Otways, near zero chance elsewhere. Light winds becoming southwesterly 15 to 20 km/h in the middle of the day then tending southerly in the evening. Daytime maximum temperatures in the low 20s.

Fire Danger - Moderate

Sun protection 9:40am to 5:40pm, UV Index predicted to reach 10 [Very High]
