Pack a raincoat if you’re heading to the Footy this arvo. Melbourne’s set to get wet.
The Bureau of Meteorology say there’s thunderstorms likely to hit central Victoria and Melbourne through this afternoon – the mid-to-late afternoon expected to get the worst of it.
The most unsettled weather will be between four and seven this afternoon, with the weather clearing into the evening. Damaging winds, heavy rain and potentially hail are likely.
But Senior Meteorologist Richard Carlyon says it’s likely the storm is likely to pass after a slippery beginning to the game – and we can expect the last three-quarters to be dry.
