Another cold front about to batter Victoria

Another cold front is on the way for Victoria today, bringing a secondary burst of rain, wind and isolated thunderstorms.

A front pushed through the state yesterday, bringing showers, isolated thunderstorms, strong winds and small hail.

Wind gusts reached up to 100km/h about the exposed coasts and ranges, while in the Melbourne area they gusted as strong as 78km/h. Showers and isolated thunderstorms brought widespread falls of 5-10mm about the state’s south, with lighter falls generally in the north, except about the northeast ranges.

The second front will sweep through during Saturday afternoon and evening, bringing powerful northwesterly winds ahead of it, reaching up to 90-100km/h in places, stronger about the alps. Gusts of around 80km/h are again possible in the Melbourne region.

The front will also bring a widespread 5-10mm across the state, including the inland regions that missed out today. Any rain will fall as snow above about 900 metres, with up to 30cm of fresh snow possible about the alps by Sunday morning.

Conditions will ease on Sunday, athough a few showers will linger about southern parts of the state.
