Issued at 9:16 pm Saturday, 28 October 2023: Thunderstorms have eased over southern Tasmania.
Weather Situation: A fast-moving cold front is sweeping over Tasmania this evening. Weakening of instability ahead of the front has led to an easing of the thunderstorm activity.

The State Emergency Service advises that people should:
* Beware of fallen trees and powerlines.
