Grab Your Umbrella Because Melbourne Could Cop Its September Average Rainfall This Weekend

The warmer weather of late has been helping many Melburnians cope with the extension of stage 4 restrictions, but that will all make way this weekend for rain, and a lot of it.

15-30mm of rain is expected across Melbourne this Saturday, with some Melbourne suburbs expected to have 40mm of rainfall.

"If that (40mm of rainfall) were to occur, then we are looking at three-quarters of the September average in just 24-hours," said Michael Efron from BoM Victoria.

No flooding is expected to happen due to the heavy rainfall thankfully, but the BoM suggests that people take care if driving during the storm.

Strong winds are expected for the rest of Friday, but will subside throughout Saturday and the heavy rainfall will not have strong wind hitting Melbourne with it.

Parts of Victoria are also expected to cop the heavy rainfall, with 20-30mm of rain expected in the Wimmera region, which will then blow to the north-central region and central region of Victoria which, of course, includes Melbourne.

Melbourne will have light showers in the morning before heavy rainfall hits the city in the late afternoon into the evening.

We'll have a cold start to next week before Wednesday sees temperatures climb into the 20s once again.
