Grey skies, thunderstorms and heavy rain covered Melbourne for less than half an hour this evening after wild weather had been predicted to hit a lot harder. The storms came across the west of the state after a deluge hit Geelong earlier today. The weather bureau said the storm and heavy rain hit Melbourne about 6pm but the CBD only received 4 millimetres of rain. Traffic was heavy, nevertheless, and many police cars and ambulances with flashing lights and sirens wove in and out of lanes to attend emergencies.
