Parts of northern Tasmania are on alert, with a severe weather warning in place ahead of forecast damaging winds which could contribute to a high fire-danger threat.

The Bureau of Meteorology has reported a front which is due to hit the island state on Tuesday morning bringing wind gusts in excess of 100 km/h, affecting the centres of Devonport, Currie, Scottsdale, Whitemark, Bridport and St Helens.

As the front passes across Tasmania combining winds, temperatures in the high 20Cs and low humidity, east and southeast parts will be subject to a very high fire danger warning, the BoM said.
