Weather Situation

A high pressure system over Victoria extends a ridge southwards across Bass Strait. The high will drift away to the northeast today as a cold front and associated low pressure system develops over the Bight. The low will weaken as it moves inland over Victoria and the front will also weaken as it enters western Victorian coastal waters late Monday afternoon. A ridge of high pressure will extend over Victoria on Tuesday as another front approaches from the southwest. The cold front will cross Bass Strait early Wednesday while the ridge is maintained over the Bight.
