Victoria and Tasmania won’t have time to recover from damaging winds this morning, with rain threatening to cause flooding across both states in the next 24 hours, according to Weatherzone.
Northerly winds strengthened ahead of a cold front this morning and as expected, both state’s experienced damaging gusts.
Winds are easing for most areas in both states behind the front, although the dangerous weather isn’t over just yet.
A band of rain sweeping in behind the front will produce widespread totals of 20-30mm during the next 24 hours in northern and western Tasmania and areas on and south of the ranges in Victoria.
While the severe weather warnings for damaging winds have been cancelled for most areas, flood watches remain in place of parts of both states.
Rain will clear by the weekend, although further showers, thunderstorms, small hail and snow will develop on Saturday. Drier weather will return to most areas on Sunday, except eastern Victoria where showers won’t clear until Monday.
