Residents of Tasmania's North-East have been warned that heavy rainfall of up to 130mm is expected across the region.
According to the Bureau of Meteorology, a complex low-pressure system is expected to move over Tasmania during Thursday and Friday, bringing a wet and windy end to the week.
At this stage BOM are uncertain of the exact position of the low due to its movement over the state. They said its position would affect the timing and distribution of rainfall and wind.
Rain is expected for all of Tasmania, particularly over the north on Thursday and over the south on Saturday.
Four-day rainfall totals of 50mm to 90mm are possible, though the North-East could receive up to 130mm.
Senior meteorologist Michael Conway said Riverine flooding was possible with this rainfall.

BOM have confirmed a flood watch will be issued on Wednesday morning.
They said that minor flooding is likely and isolated moderate flooding is possible.
Strong east to northeasterly winds are likely on Thursday according to the bureau.
They said this is an unusual wind direction and when combined with heavy rainfall, it could make trees more susceptible to falling.
Thunderstorms are also expected across the north and east of Tasmania on Thursday.
According to BOM, these storms are likely to affect the entire state on Friday and could generate hail.
Tasmania State Emergency Service advised the public to be prepared for flash flooding and to check that others were aware of the warnings.
They said people should have a plan in place and recommended that they cleared their drains of debris. For live updates visit bom.gov.au.
