Tasmania

Synoptic Situation: A broad area of low pressure lies over southeastern Australia while a high south of WA extends a ridge south of Tasmania, directing a southeasterly flow. The high will drift over the Bight during Sunday, then south of Tasmania on Monday, while the area of low pressure moves over the Tasman Sea. The associated lows will intensify early Tuesday but remain quasi stationary as the persistent high to the southeast of Tasmania cradles the system.
Wind and wave forecasts are averages. Wind gusts can be 40 per cent stronger than the forecast, and stronger still in squalls and thunderstorms. Maximum waves can be twice the forecast height.
