Weather Situation
A high pressure system just south of Adelaide currently extends a ridge across
Victoria to another high developing off the New South Wales coast, with the
ridge to remain in place tomorrow while the eastern high continues eastwards
over the Tasman Sea. A cold front will cross Tasmania on Friday, briefly
intruding on the ridge during the day, with the western high centre to then
move near the New South Wales coast in the evening. A deep low moving east over
the Southern Ocean will extend a trough over western Victoria Saturday morning,
followed by a cold front which will cross the state in the evening. The low
will then spin another cold front towards Victoria late Sunday as it passes
south of Tasmania.

Forecast for the rest of Wednesday 2 December
Dry and partly cloudy with light to moderate southwesterly winds, fresher about
the east coast.
