 Forecast Notes
A low pressure system will develop south of Tasmania overnight as a cold front moves across Tasmania. The low will deepen on Friday as it moves over the Tasman Sea. The next high pressure system will remain well to the west of Victoria for the time being, allowing further cold fronts to cross Tasmania and Bass Strait on Saturday and Monday.
