Forecast issued at 4:40 pm EDT on Saturday 13 February 2016.

Weather Situation

A weakening cold front will brush southern Victoria tonight with another cold front to cross Tasmania on Sunday. A high pressure ridge will briefly extend over Victoria on Monday but the main high pressure centre will remain well back to the south of W.A for most of next week. This will allow another cold front to move across Victoria by Tuesday morning and an associated low pressure system will develop south of Tasmania then move slowly over the southern Tasman Sea on Wednesday.
