Northwesterly winds, which will strengthen through the day bringing in a warm air mass, will average 35-50km/h by midday with wind gusts likely to reach 70km/h, Weatherzone meteorologist  Rob Sharpe said.

These winds are unlikely to cause significant damage, though.

Thursday is looking similarly warm and windy.

However, the winds are not as strong as in Australia’s south. Strong winds are developing in South Australia and will impact on New South Wales Victoria, Tasmania and .

A severe weather warning was issued this morning for damaging winds in parts of South Australia and Victoria. Northerly winds are expected to average 50-65km/h and gust up to 100km/h in many southern districts. Winds of this strength are capable of felling trees and power lines.

Damaging winds have already been recorded today at Cape Willoughby on Kangaroo Island where winds were consistently gusting above 90km/h from 7am.

The very strong northerly winds are developing ahead of a vigorous cold front that will cross South Australia today, reaching Adelaide about midnight.

The front will then weaken as it moves further east, but not before it delivers winds of similar strength to the Wimmera and South West districts in Victoria.

Winds are likely to be even stronger tomorrow in southern parts of South Australia as a low pressure system sweeps near the coast.

These winds should average 60-80km/h for exposed parts of the coast with wind gusts in excess of 100km/h. These winds are likely to cause even more damage along the coast than today’s strong winds. Adelaide is also at risk of wind damage.

Victoria will then receive the brunt of the strong winds tomorrow night with damage a fair chance, mainly on the coast and ranges, including Melbourne. These winds would be strong enough to fell trees and power lines.
