South East Tasmania Forecast - Weather (Synoptic) Situation:
A high pressure system centred near New Zealand currently extends a ridge over Tasmania, while a low lies over the Tasman Sea. The ridge will move to the east of Tasmania today, as a cold front slowly crosses the Bight. The front will approach the west of Tasmania late Sunday before crossing the state on Monday. The flow will ease on Tuesday as another high moves over South Australia and extends a ridge just west of the state.
