Over the past couple of days we have had a cold front sweeping through Victoria and bringing with it some wild weather: Cold, rain, winds, hail and thunderstorms with lightning. More than 40 millimetres of rain have fallen over the past two days, with Melbourne on track to record its wettest April since 2001.
Wednesday was the coldest day in Melbourne so far this year with a maximum of about 14˚C, and averaging 11˚C for most of the day. Hail hit Melbourne's south-east suburbs on Wednesday afternoon, particularly Toorak. There were also reports of hail in Brighton, Alphington, Fairfield (where the photos below were taken), and Pakenham throughout the day.
The Darebin Creek in the Parklands at Fairfield/Alphington flooded with a great deal of water coming through at a great speed. We are expecting more of these weather conditions over the next couple of days.
