Mild and settled weather conditions expected for Easter long weekend


Most Australians should see mild and settled conditions for the Easter long weekend with the Bureau of Meteorology releasing its Easter forecast.

Bureau Meteorologist Jackson Browne said that while Easter is still a couple of days away and forecasts could change, Australians could start planning their Easter weekend.

"It will be a mild and mostly sunny start to the Easter long weekend across most parts of Australia with some isolated showers for south-east Western Australia, with showers and storms for the north-east Australian coast and Top End," Mr Browne said.

"The weather will be generally settled across most parts of Australia on Easter Saturday but late in the day, a cool change is expected to reach Perth. This front will move east across the country on Easter Sunday, bringing partly cloudy and showery conditions to southern South Australia, including Adelaide, and then Tasmania south-west and Victoria by Sunday night."

Easter Monday is likely to bring cool, partly cloudy and showery conditions across southern Australia, including Perth, Adelaide, Hobart and Melbourne. The cold front will move across Victoria and up the south-east coast towards Sydney, with cloud building later in the day and cooler air and showers coming in overnight.

It's important to remember that weather conditions can change rapidly so keep up to date with the latest weather warnings and forecasts throughout the holiday period on the Bureau's website or on the BOM weather app.
