SES & BOM has released flood watch for VIC.
A cold front is moving into the west of the state, bringing showers and rain. Rainfall will increase during Thursday and Friday, with heavy falls likely as the front moves slowly eastwards.

Flooding is likely to develop from Thursday. Widespread Minor to Major flooding is expected across Northern Victoria and parts of Western Victoria. Isolated Minor flooding is possible in parts of Gippsland.
