Port Phillip Local Waters Forecast

Forecast issued at 10:00 pm EST on Tuesday 13 April 2021.

Weather Situation

Strong northerly winds will continue across Victorian coastal waters through the rest of today as a deep low pressure system crosses the Southern Ocean and an associated cold front approaches from the west. Winds will gradually ease throughout Wednesday as the front crosses Victoria and the low moves south of Tasmania. Another front is expected to cross Bass Strait later on Thursday, while a high near WA is expected to extend a ridge across the Victoria on Friday ahead of another cold front which is forecast to cross Victorian coastal waters on Saturday.

The next routine forecast will be issued at 5:10 am EST Wednesday.

Weather Resources

We often smile as it unfolds that the Melbourne and Mornington Peninsula region can have four seasons in one day, but these small changes in weather generally do not effect diving. If rain is forecast, it doesn't matter as you're already planning to get wet! When it's raining you will often find that the wind dies down and surface conditions improve.

These are the links to the web sites we use to plan our dives near Melbourne.
