TASMANIA is being buffeted by strong wind, with gusts forecast to hit 100km/h later in the day.

The Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe weather warning earlier today.

It said a low-pressure system would pass just to the south of Tasmania this afternoon, with an associated cold front to cross the state from the west this evening and overnight.

Damaging winds about 50 km/h, with peak gusts of 100 km/h, were forecast for the entire state

Speaking just before 2pm today, State Emergency Service regional duty officer Mark Dance said no calls had been received yet but conditions were expected to intensify.

He said householders should secure any loose items around their homes and keep well clear of any fallen trees or downed power lines.

Drivers are advised that wind gusts will make driving conditions dangerous this afternoon and evening on many roads around Tasmania.

For emergency help in floods and storms, ring the SES on 132 500.
