Macquarie National News

A severe weather warning has been issued for Victoria as Melbourne braces for 24 hours of wild weather.

Almost 15mm of rain fell in the Melbourne CBD in about 15 minutes, with the storm set to pass in the next hour.

The Cranbourne, Pakenham and Frankston lines were all affected following the storm, with Metro Trains confirming peak hour delays due to flooding at South Yarra.

The dramatic change comes after Melburnians endured mild overnight temperatures.

Earlier this morning, the lowest the temperature fell to overnight was 22°, and then quickly jumped to 25° by 6am.

The all-time highest overnight low for November is 26°.

“I think we’re going to get a fair bit of rain,” the Bureau of Meterology’s Richard Carlyon said on 3AW Breakfast.

“Some suburbs will pick up 15-30mm.”

“It will be hit or miss today, but if you do miss out on rain today I think on Thursday or Friday we shold see falls of 10-20mm.”

Earlier today, early-risers were greeted by a brilliant red and orange sunrise this morning, prompting Ross and John to recite “red sky warning, shepherds warning”.

That resulted in a call from a very worried Shaun the Shepherd.
