Southern Tasmania Forecast (issued Friday 29th November)

Best Days: Early Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday afternoon


Tiny waves continued yesterday, while onshore winds have kicked in today with a building S/SW swell.

This weekend (Nov 30 – Dec 1)

An onshore change and polar front pushing up into the state today will kick up a medium sized S/SW swell for tomorrow to 2-3ft across the South Arm. Winds should be W'ly early tomorrow, while Sunday will be cleanest with early N'ly winds and a dropping swell from 2ft.

Next week (Dec 2 onwards)

A long-range and inconsistent SW groundswell is due Tuesday generated by a distant polar front over the coming days (pictured right). This should be met with NW tending W/NW winds as the swell peaks during the afternoon.

Longer term we may see a strong front/mid-latitude low move across us later next week, but check back here on Monday for the latest on this.
