Severe weather's forecast to continue for Tasmania's south, southeast and east coast on Thursday as strong westerlies continue to blow over.

No major damage was reported from yesterday's statewide blast.

Senior Forecaster Glenn Perrin says they've also issued a sheep graziers alert.

"We've got a front approaching the state tonight, it's going to see those winds pick up through the day,"

"We're looking at winds averaging 60-70 kilometres an hour about central, southern and eastern areas of the state, and there is some chance that those stronger winds will last into the early hours of Friday morning."

* Supervise children closely.
* Check that family and neighbours are aware of warnings.
