Weather Situation

A cold front over western Victoria will cross remaining parts of the State tonight as an associated low pressure system near Kangaroo Island approaches from the west. The low will pass over Victoria on Thursday before weakening as a stronger low develops to the east of Tasmania during the afternoon and deepens producing a cold unstable southwesterly airstream over Victoria into Friday. During Saturday the low will slowly move eastward, with a weak ridge developing over Victoria which will persist into Sunday.
