It’s not over yet, though, with the risk of heavy falls continuing, with showers and storms today. The focus for today is on the west of the state, where we could see heavy falls to potentially intense rainfall rates, large hail and also the risk of damaging winds.
Thunderstorm warnings have already been issued around the Port Campbell area. As we move into the evening and into tomorrow, that focus really becomes the central area, including Melbourne.
For the Melbourne area, the greatest risk of those thunderstorms develops from around midday and continues through the afternoon and evening. There’s a risk of central parts of the state tomorrow for those locally to intense rainfall rates, large hail and damaging winds.
Moving into the weekend, we’ll start to see cooler conditions, but that risk of heavy falls will continue in the east of the state. Unfortunately, that humidity is here to stay though, with the very muggy conditions continuing until at least the middle part of next week.
