most recent warnings
The weather bureau is warning Tasmanians of a wet and windy week ahead after gusts associated with a cold front caused widespread power outages.
A deep cold front has swept through Melbourne and parts of southern Victoria, uprooting trees and damaging buildings with wind gusts of more than 100 kilometres per hour (kph).
Widespread rainfall is expected to impact NSW from Saturday as two systems interact with one another from the north and west.
