The Bureau of Meteorology says gusty wind continues to sweep across Victoria as a cold front looms in from South Australia.
A gale warning is in place for the state’s Central, South West, North East and West and South Gippsland districts and parts of the Wimmera on Thursday.
A highest peak gust of 96km/h has been recorded at the Grampians’ Mount William but for alpine areas, it is expected to blow out to 110km/h, said senior forecaster Stephen King.
“A cold front comes through in the early morning and so we’ll get a wintry blast for the rest of the day – the typical sort of showery day with possible hail and thunder in the afternoon, getting up to 13C,”
“Most of the day, we’ll be spending around the 10C mark (but) with the windy conditions behind that cold front it will feel closer to 5C,” said Mr King.
