    Severe storms pose huge health risk for Melbourne as wild weather sweeps across Australia

    Severe storms pose huge health risk for Melbourne as wild weather is set to sweep across Australia’s south-east – here’s how it’ll be where you are

    • Thunderstorms to wreak havoc for asthma and hay fever suffers next few days 
    • Wild weather is set to smash the southeast of Australia tonight and tomorrow
    • Heavy rain, damaging winds and large hailstones are expected to hit some parts 

    A severe storm system is set to wreak havoc on asthma and hay fever sufferers over the next few days.

    The ‘epidemic thunderstorm’ is forecast to lash western and central Victoria tonight before hitting southern parts of New South Wales and Melbourne on Wednesday and Thursday.

    With pollen in abundance during springtime, heavy storms can stir up the allergen and make life a nightmare for those at risk.

    ‘This week and next week will be the peak in the pollen season,’ Justin Dunlop, the regional health commander at Ambulance Victoria warned in a public service message.

    ‘If you suffer from hay fever or asthma, know the symptoms and what to look for and you take your medication.

    ‘If there is a thunderstorm, that is when you are at greater risk… you should stay indoors.’

    ‘Thunderstorm asthma’ is a serious phenomenon that led to a massive outbreak of sudden asthma attacks in 2016.

    Thousands of sufferers presented to emergency hospital departments in the November period prompting greater warnings and protocols to be put in place.

    On Monday a massive cold front bringing dangerous 90 km/h winds swept across Perth and the southwest of Western Australia.

    As it continues to move across South Australia, heavy rain, damaging winds and large hail are expected to tear through Adelaide this evening.

    ‘Wednesday will be the peak thunderstorm day across Victoria after a very warm night and this could produce heavy rainfall and damaging winds,’ Bureau of Meteorology meteorologist Jonathan How said.

    ‘The storms are expected to reach Melbourne towards the evening after a windy day.

    ‘It will also be hot in Hobart with late showers.’

    On Thursday and Friday the Storm activity will weaken and move into eastern parts of New South Wales and the ACT.

    Some showers in Sydney and Canberra can be expected.

    Some parts of the Great Dividing Ranges in New South Wales are predicted to see about 5 to 15mm of rain over the next few days, Western Victoria is forecast to receive 15 to 25mm, while the west coast of Tasmania is bracing for up to 50mm. 

    The storms are expected to reach Melbourne towards the evening after a windy day on Tuesday
