District Forecasts for Tasmania
Issued at 5:40 am EST on Wednesday 4 May 2016
for the period until midnight EST Saturday 7 May 2016.
A cool westerly stream will tend northwesterly today as a low passes well to
the south. A cold front will approach Tasmania late on Thursday, and cross the
state early Friday, with the northwesterly stream continuing in its wake. The
stream will ease later on Friday due to the influence of a ridge of high
pressure to the northeast of Tasmania, then tend warmer northerly on Saturday.
A large low pressure system is expected to develop in the Bight late Saturday.
