District Forecasts for Tasmania
Issued at 4:25 pm EST on Monday 17 May 2021
for the period until midnight EST Friday 21 May 2021.

Weather Situation
A southwesterly stream over Tasmania will tend westerly overnight into Tuesday
as a high moves to the north of the state. The stream will tend northwesterly
on Wednesday and strengthen as a cold front approaches. The cold front will
cross Tasmania during Thursday morning, then a high to the north will extend a
ridge over the state. The high will move into the Tasman Sea on Friday
afternoon allowing a northwesterly stream to develop over Tasmania.
