Cloudy with showers through parts of SA and western VIC this morning is now picking up pace and beginning to move closer to Central VIC and TAS this afternoon.
Moderate rainfall totals are expected as the rain band begins to thicken up a little over Melbourne and particularly running east towards the Yarra Ranges. Some areas east of Melbourne could see 20-40mm once again out of this system.
Rain coming into Melbourne as seen by the radar at 12pm EST.
Snowfalls may also develop tonight over the Alpine peaks in Victoria, with wind blow flurries most likely. This will be a less intense event as per the one 2 weeks ago when 20cm fell at some southern resorts.
Showers to follow the rain through southeast SA, southern and mountain VIC and western TAS, with pockets of hail and thunder overnight and into Wednesday morning.
Strong wind gusts are possible with the showers as the move in off Bass Strait.
Wind chill will be running high over the coming 24 hours with graziers advised of the risk being moderate to high for young stock over the coming days.
Frost will return to the forecast for Wednesday morning over inland areas, which will remain dry and breezy today. Temperatures will fall away over NSW tomorrow, especially through the southern half of the state.
Additional rainfall to come from Tuesday lunch through Wednesday afternoon.
