HEAR THE LATEST:

Thunderstorms were tipped to roll across Melbourne on Thursday, and they certainly did, hitting the city late in the afternoon.

Senior Meteorologist Richard Carlyon from the Bureau of Meteorology Victoria said at 4 pm the storms would hit over the next two hours.

"It's looking a little better," he said.

"The latest guidance indicates a clearance perhaps half an hour to an hour earlier, so the main storm band should be through by 6.

"There'll still be lingering showers between 6 and 8."
