Flood warnings active


While the mainland's feeling the worst effects of an icy blast moving up through south-east Australia, Tasmania's weather isn't faring much better.

The low pressure system is moving away to the north-east, meaning conditions should start to ease through this afternoon and tomorrow.

Wind and rain lashed the state overnight and it's a similar forecast for much of the east, south and west today.

Spare a thought for Gippsland in Victoria and Central West NSW where there's been hundreds of SES calls for assistance. 

While conditions weren't as serious in Tassie - by 9am this morning, 65 millimetres of rain had been dumped at Razorback, and Gape Grim had endured gusts up 120km/h.

There's also some minor flooding for the Huon River at Harrisons Crossing and the Tahune Bridge, while a number of inland water systems are also being monitored for flooding.

About 10-15mm is expected for the west and south-east on Sunday, while the north will only get around 2mm.

Snow will get down to about 600 metres by this evening, before rising back to 900 metres tomorrow.
