[News] More damaging winds and hail on the way for Melbourne after cold blast

“There is the possibility of some hail later tonight, once some more cold air comes through.”

SES state duty officer Andrew Fagan said damage from Saturday night’s storm was widespread across the state, with crews focused on Eltham in Melbourne’s north-east and Sunbury in the north-west.

“Even small country towns areas like Woomelang up in the far north-west and then Kaniva near the South Australian border — they still had eight and 10 jobs respectively, and for a small country town, that’s actually fairly huge,” he said.

Fagan says the biggest concern was continued reports of people driving into floodwaters, with one person needing to be rescued at Port Campbell on Saturday night and another in Heathcote on Sunday morning.

“One gentleman today was in his car with a rottweiler, there was a big flooded creek and his car was floating, with water waist-deep through the vehicle.

“It’s just luck that we’re not seeing people killed, versus good management.

“Don’t drive through, play, ride, swim or even think about going in floodwaters. The risk to yourself is huge, but also the risk to the emergency responders helping you is massive.”

Melbourne is expected to reach a top of 15 degrees on Monday and can expect between 2 and 5mm of rain, but sunshine and more settled conditions are forecast for Friday.

“Tomorrow that cold weather really continues — we’re looking at the snow level dropping down to about 700 metres, and we’ll still have showers, thunderstorms and hail possible for much of the state,” Cherney said.

“After Tuesday, there will be a bit of an easing trend … By Thursday and Friday, we’ll see things starting to warm up a little bit, with a hint of that spring weather which people look forward to.”

Melbourne is expected to hit a top temperature of 21 degrees on Thursday, before a sunny Friday with a high of 25 degrees.

Victorians can call 132 500 for flood and storm assistance, but any urgent emergency calls should still be made to 000.
