Southern Tasmania Forecast (issued Wednesday 27th November)

Best Days: Early Saturday, Sunday


Swell has faded away from the south the last day or so and today it's basically flat.

This week and weekend (Nov 27 – Dec 1)

Tomorrow will remain tiny with a freshening onshore wind, but a broad and strong polar front is forecast to push up into us Friday (pictured right) kicking up a medium sized S/SW windswell Friday afternoon to 2-3ft, with a S/SW groundswell for Saturday to a similar size (slightly above model forecasts).

Winds will be onshore from the SW Friday but and early W/NW'ly is expected on Saturday morning while Sunday should see offshore N/NE winds creating fun surf.

Longer term (Dec 2 onwards)

The weather patterns will change for the better into next week, but at this stage we'll only see tiny levels of swell making its way into the South Arm through the first half. Some stronger W/SW swell is on the cards later in the week but we'll review this Friday.
