Notes on the Weather :

A lingering low pressure trough is meandering over much of the Northern and Central part of Australia. An upper level low has formed in the bight and is interacting with a low pressure trough that stretches across the country from Tasmania through Perth and into the Indian Ocean. Rain will become more widespread from the west overnight and on Thursday morning, scattered showers in the west of the state. there will also be local thunderstorms and hail in the afternoon and evening from Central areas through to Gippsland.

Cooler conditions will prevail following the passage of the front in Victoria on Friday, quickly clearing for fine conditions and into the early part of the weekend. Conditions will be warm and become increasingly humid before a very large system develops on the Tuesday of Cup Weekend, with rain and colder weather becoming established. Locally heavy rainfall is likely to develop on Tuesday and Wednesday for Victoria.
