South East Tasmania Forecast - Weather (Synoptic) Situation:
A high over the Bight will slowly move eastwards today, as a low develops over the northern Tasman Sea. The high should then weaken on Wednesday as it moves over NSW, while the low over the Tasman Sea intensifies. A cold front will cross the Bight on Thursday morning, then weaken and form a trough to our northwest by Thursday evening while a high centre remains close to the state. This high remains close to the state on Friday while several troughs sit over the mainland.
