An early dose of winter weather has caused disruptive conditions in the state's North, with one road closed to some traffic and bushwalkers urged to take care.
Cradle Mountain and Belvoir roads were closed to all traffic except four-wheel-drives between the Cethana Road intersection at Moina and the Murchison Highway on Friday night, Tasmania Police advised.
This followed an earlier notice from police for drivers to use caution travelling on Highlands Lake Road between the Steppes and Liawenee, due to snow and ice on the road.
The Bureau of Meteorology warned a front set to cross the state about midday Saturday could bring damaging westerly winds and gusts of up to 100km/h in central and southern areas until the evening.
