Port Phillip Local Waters Forecast

Forecast issued at 5:10 am EST on Monday 10 August 2020.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system near Tasmania extends a ridge across Western Bass Strait, while a deep low pressure system off the NSW Coast will slowly move northeast across the Tasman Sea. The high and associated ridge will move slowly east and into the Tasman Sea by Tuesday. A deep low pressure system and associated cold front enter the Bight on Monday. The front is expected to reach western Bass Strait late Tuesday before sliding slowly across Bass Strait on Wednesday and weakening as the low becomes near stationary to the west of Tasmania. A mild, humid and unstable northwesterly airstream will prevail for the remainder of the week following the front.

The next routine forecast will be issued at 4:40 pm EST Monday.

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.
