North-east Vic braces for high winds

Thursday July 18, 2013 - 09:00 EST

Wild weather is expected to lash north-east Victoria later today.

The weather bureau is predicting winds of up to 130 kilometres per hour in the alpine region and heavy downpours and thunderstorms into tomorrow, with some areas expected to get up to 60 millimetres of rain.

Forecaster Stephen Wood says a cold front, which is near Adelaide, will bring the wet and windy conditions.

"Already over alpine areas wind gusts are getting up to 90 kilometres an hour but north of the ranges there, winds will probably pick up to 50 to 70 kilometres an hour just after midday into the afternoon as that front approaches," he said.
