Latest Weather Commentary

Cold, wet and windy weather ready to hit Victoria

A strong cold front is crossing the Bight and will sweep across Victoria on Wednesday.

This will bring a band of showers tending to rain, and a line of thunderstorms. Then winds turn bitterly cold, with wintry showers to follow (showers passing through with icy pellets of hail and rumbles of thunder). This system has a significant pool of cold air, and snow should lower on the ranges to around 800 metres later Wednesday and on Thursday.

A weak low pressure system will move from northwest Tasmania to east of Tasmania on the weekend. It is only borderline cold enough for snow up high, lowering to around 1600 metres at times on Friday and Saturday, with only light falls

The next high pressure system moves over New South Wales on Saturday, making cold fronts slide down to our south into early next week - but check the outlook as this pattern will change.
