District Forecasts for Tasmania
Issued at 4:25 pm EDT on Friday 27 March 2015
for the period until midnight EDT Tuesday 31 March 2015.
A complex area of low pressure will move away to the east this evening as a
high over the Bight extends a ridge to the southwest of Tasmania late in the
day, developing a southwesterly flow. The ridge will cross the state during
Saturday as a cold front moves into the Bight resulting in a freshening
northwesterly stream. The cold front is expected to cross Tasmania during
Sunday, and linger about the northeast during the evening as the next ridge of
high pressure builds over the state. A high will move to the north of Tasmania
on Monday, resulting in a westerly flow over the state, then to the northeast
of the state on Tuesday, with the flow tending northwesterly.
