It comes after tides of up to 1.9 meters were recorded at Spring Bay and Battery Point overnight with the current warning extending to west, southern and lower eastern coastal areas.
It is believed these may be the highest tides experienced across South-Eastern Tasmania since May 1994, with Orford, Strahan, Hobart and Dover likely to be impacted.
"We normally see high tides, but the low pressure system that is crossing Tasmania on Sunday morning is quite deep so that's having an impact," meteorologist Deb Tabor said .
Ms Tabor said the rise in seawater could cause flooding in some areas and drivers in coastal areas should drive to conditions.
The bureau also advised wind speeds of 50km/h to 60km/h were expected in the North and North-West regions with gusts of up to 90km/h.
