A low pressure trough over central Bass Strait will reach Port Phillip Heads around 0600hrs. A strong cold front over the Bight will reach the far west around 1700 Tuesday and Cape Otway around 2100, then cross the remainder of Bass Strait during the early hours of Wednesday. A cold, strong and unstable southwesterly airflow will then moderate on Thursday as a large high pressure system develops over the Bight. The high will then drift slowly towards Victoria, maintaining a cool southwesterly airflow across the State.
The next routine forecast will be issued at 4:40 pm EST Tuesday.
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.
