District Forecasts for Tasmania
Issued at 4:25 pm EDT on Wednesday 27 January 2021
for the period until midnight EDT Sunday 31 January 2021.

Weather Situation
A high pressure system to the southwest of Tasmania will direct a southerly
flow over the state, tending southeasterly as a ridge builds up the east coast
today. On Thursday, the high moves to the south of the state shifting the winds
more easterly, then northeasterly late in the day as the high moves into the
Tasman Sea. Northeasterly winds continue and strengthen on Friday with a trough
extending from the mainland to the west and a low develops west of Tasmania.
The trough and decaying low cross the state into the Tasman Sea on Saturday as
a ridge develops from the west. The ridge and high move from the west of
Tasmania into the Tasman Sea during Sunday.
