Melbourne To Get A Super Drenching Overnight

A once in 50-year storm that is lashing South Australia looks set to skip Victoria.

The wild weather has forced South Australian to stay indoors. While some parts of Victoria’s west have been affected, the worst of the storm is moving north.

"The worst of the wind will certainly miss Victoria," Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Stephen King said.

"You could say it's a once in 50-years storm and it's affecting the coast of South Australia, but Victoria will largely miss out on that system.

"The wind belt will move to above Mildura and then head to NSW." 

"There is an intensifying low-pressure system over the (Great Australian) Bight to our west and that's reaching western Victoria this afternoon. There's actually already thunderstorms there now," Mr King said.

"Those thunderstorms will reach central Victoria around midnight with falls between 3am and 9am tomorrow."

Melbourne can expect between 5 and 15mm of rain between 3am and 9am.
