Melbourne can expect more wet weather as a band of thunderstorms could develop on Friday and Saturday.
Up to 50mm of rain could fall in some area of Victoria with a “topsy-turvy” weekend predicted by Sky News Weather metrologist Rob Sharpe.
“On Friday night into Saturday, a low pressure system is set to form over the top of Victoria. This will lead to heavy falls and widespread areas of rain moving east across the state,” he said.
Showers moved across #Victoria today with a cold front and there is more wet weather to come. Showers will continue across the north and east on Friday with widespread rain expected on Saturday, easing later in the day.
