DAMAGING WINDS COULD CAUSE SIGNIFICANT TREE DAMAGE IN THE SOUTHEAST FRIDAY.

Strong gradient winds on the southern side of a low passing through NSW and the approach of a strong ridge into Bight waters will set up a tight pressure gradient which will lead to damaging winds throughout Friday.


Southeast winds of up to 110km/h along the southeast and southern slopes in VIC and about the Adelaide Hills, coming from a relatively unusual direction may easily topple trees that are in wet and boggy soils.


Tree damage is running very high which may lead to power outages.


Stay weather aware and be prepared for this belt of severe winds, some areas could be absolutely clobbered.


Damaging Winds Risk Friday

It may be a brief event but as mentioned the direction of the winds and the combination of wet soils and unstable trees, not a good mix for those in those bushy locations throughout VIC and SA.


Winds ease Saturday and tend easterly.
