Weather and Climate: The storm is now forecast for north port, but is the storm forecast to be strong?

The storm has moved into the north-west of Melbourne, and is expected to be a heavy downpour, and possibly hail and a wind gust of up to 100km/h.

A heavy rain warning has been issued for the eastern suburbs of Wollongong, and the state’s south-west.

In South Melbourne, roads will be closed as heavy rain continues to fall, and residents are urged to stay at home, and to check on their pets.

More to come.
