DAMAGING WINDS ABOUT THE DIVIDE AND COAST THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING

upload_2020-8-27_17-0-3.png

Weather Situation: A cold front will move rapidly across Victoria Thursday afternoon and evening.

DAMAGING WINDS, averaging 60 to 70 km/h with peak gusts of around 100 km/h are currently occurring about elevated areas (above 600m) of Victoria. Peak gusts to 120 km/h are expected about the Alpine peaks.

DAMAGING WINDS with peak gusts around 100 km/h are also occurring about the south coast Thursday afternoon, extending to the Greater Melbourne area this evening, then contracting to central coasts during the early evening and the Gippsland coasts late. These winds are associated with the passage of a cold front and will have a rapid onset and will not persist for long, gradually easing following the passage of the front.

Damaging winds will contract eastward tonight, easing below warning thresholds in the west during the late afternoon or early evening, central parts during the evening, and the East Gippsland coast by early Friday morning. Winds over the Northeast ranges will ease during Friday morning.

Locations which may be affected include Warrnambool, Geelong, Melbourne, Wonthaggi, Bairnsdale and Orbost.

In the last hour, Mt Gellibrand has recorded a gust of 124km/h, with 102 km/h at Cape Otway, 100km/h at Port Fairy and 89 km/h at Avalon.

I walked to the supermarket around 4:15pm in brilliant sunshine...walked out 15 minutes later to grey skies and fierce winds, plus a noticeable temperature drop. The skies to the south and west look awful from my vantage point in South Yarra.

It is very windy and wet here in NE Lepersville. Today was ideal cycling weather ( sunny and dry ) except for one worrying moment when the wind really whipped up and almost tossed my front wheel out from under me while I was screaming down and around a hill on the blacktop surface above the recommended 40 K/P/H.

Got absolutely hammered up here too.
Powers been out for a while. Expected back on after 2am.
Was really wild. Heaps of trees down locally. Heap of sirens earlier.
Settled down down, rain with the odd gust.

Change just come through our necks of the woods. Easy 100kph+ gusts. Waiting for winds to settle a bit before checking for trees over fences. Cooled down a bit according to the young fella.
