North East District Forecast
Issued at 4:15 pm EST on Friday 28 August 2015
for the period until midnight EST Tuesday 1 September 2015.

Warning Information
Details of warnings are available on the Bureau's website www.bom.gov.au, by

Weather Situation
A low pressure complex is situated over the western Tasman Sea, while a large
high pressure lies over the Southern Ocean west of Tasmania. During Saturday a
front associated with the low complex will cross Victoria. At the same time the
high will move well south of Tasmania, with a ridge extending from the high
into central Australia. Both the low complex and ridge will move slowly
eastward, the latter reaching western Victoria late on Sunday then the eastern
half of the State by late Monday. The next trough of low pressure is expected
to enter western Victoria during Tuesday, as the ridge weakens.
