Cold front sends the temperatures plummenting in the region, down to as low as 4°C.RHIANNON HORRELL June 25, 2014 3:12am
Echuca-Moama has received patchy wind and rain this week as a cold front moves across the state.
Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Gary Missen said Echuca could expect showers over the next few days with some rain.
‘‘The temperatures will remain in the mid-teens for the next few days,’’ he said.
‘‘There will be strong winds at times.’’
Mr Missen said the cold front moving across Victoria would bring heavy rain for Melbourne, but Echuca would be spared the brunt.
A severe weather warning was also issued for the Northern Country yesterday.
Mr Missen said while the wind readings in Echuca were unclear, Bendigo had received wind gusts of up to 80km/h.
Temperatures are expected to drop to 4°C or 5°C on Sunday and Monday.
