Rains are coming

The Wimmera could get significant rainfall wednesday and thursday

No the kids aren't on the roof eating super sweet corn - there could be some decent rain coming in the next two to three days.

The Bureau of Meteorology has forecast some good rain for the Northern and Northeast part of the state with Benalla set to cop the bulk of the drop over the next few days.

A deep low-pressure system is forming south of Adelaide that will see a band of rain and embedded thunderstorms developing across Western Victoria during Wednesday and extending through to eastern parts of the state on Thursday.

Michael Effron senior forecaster from the Bureau of Meteorology said 'there could be healthy rainfall totals across northern and north-east Victoria - with a possible 30 to 60 millimeters - with thunderstorms likely the north could receive up to 100 mils in some parts'.

The western part of the state could be a bit hit and miss - the Mallee and Wimmera districts could get between 5 to 15 millimeters - however with thunderstorm activity, this could mean up to 30 mil is also possible.

Precise total and exact locations of rain cant be determined as yet - however the Michael suggests keeping an eye on the meteye tab on the BOM website to track the rain in your location.
