The tail end of the weather system that's lashing parts of New South Wales will be felt in Tasmania in the middle of the week.
The heaviest hit is due on Wednesday morning where rainfall could be up to 100 mills and winds punching at 100 k's an hour whipping up damaging surf on the east coast.
About 60 to 100mm of rainfall is forecast across northeast Tasmania on Wednesday, with well over 100mm possible across elevated areas, 40 to 80mm could fall across the remainder of the east and southeast, and less than 40mm expected elsewhere.
A Severe Weather Warning is expected to be issued Tuesday morning.
The Bureau of Meteorology says the rain is not expected to be as extreme as that seen across New South Wales as the rainfall amounts won’t be as high or the period as prolonged.
