THERE shouldn't be any reason to find shelter from the rain this weekend, because it and winter have almost passed.
Rain continued to fall for most of the day in and around Launceston yesterday due to a trough trailing behind a low pressure system.
Bureau of Meteorology duty forecaster Anna Forrest said yesterday the trough should have moved east overnight and taken the rain with it.
She said there would be light rain lingering on the North-East Coast, Flinders Island and near Scottsdale this morning.
"That will clear by early afternoon and there will be a nice light Northerly sea breeze in the afternoon and overnight," Ms Forrest said.
"Sunday is fine and beaut all day, until about 8pm when we might see some wind [and rain] pushing into the West Coast."
Tomorrow, temperatures are expected to top 20 degrees in Launceston and be "a little cooler" on the Coast.
The Bureau of Meteorology will release its official winter report next week.
