STRONG STORMS EXPECTED ACROSS NORTHERN/CENTRAL VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA! (credit: Melbourne Storm Chasers)
DISCUSSION: As a strong cold front associated with a strengthening low-pressure system makes its way through parts of Northeastern and East-Central Australia, thunderstorms capable of producing strong/damaging winds will be more common throughout the afternoon and evening hours tomorrow! As described in recent regional forecasts from the Bureau of Meteorology, the threat for flooding and damaging thunderstorms will continue to threaten parts of Southern and Central Victoria!

DISCUSSION: As a strong low-pressure system hung offshore just a few days ago, impressive wave action impacting the coastline along Southern Victoria as captured in the image below courtesy of the Bureau of Meteorology. It is likely that these waves caused significant beach erosion along parts of Southern Victoria!

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING ISSUED FOR PART OF NEW SOUTH WALES! (credit: Australian Bureau of Meteorology)
DISCUSSION: As a weak pulse of energy moves further south over the next couple of hours, an increased threat for strong convection is in place across southern parts of New South Wales! See the graphic below courtesy of the Australian Bureau of Meteorology for more details!

DISCUSSION: In the wake of a strong cold front recently passing through Southern Australia, an enhanced pressure gradient has helped to amplify the onshore flow in the wake of the associated cold front's passage. As discussed in the post below, as this enhanced pressure gradient begins to back off the associated winds will be in the back off and the associated wave action will begin to weaken with time as well. Nonetheless, some very impressive wave action for spectators and surfers along parts of Southern Victoria!

DISCUSSION: Over the next few days, an increasignly more challenging weather forecast will develop for parts of Eastern and Southern Australia as a strengthening low-pressure system develops and deepens prior to moving onshore. As it does so the areas projected to experience heavy rainfall (along with decent severe weather potential and even possibly some accumulating snowfall across higher terrain) coupled by strong gusty winds and strong swells along the south-facing coastlines!
