Melbourne shrugs off cold days

Ben Domensino, Friday July 13, 2018 - 10:27 AEST


Melbourne will have a chance to thaw out today after experiencing its coldest three day spell in as many years during the middle of this week.


Daytime temperatures have been suppressed across Victoria during the last few days as a pool of cold air produced widespread cloud and showers across the state.


The mercury at Melbourne's Olympic Park failed to reach 12 degrees between Tuesday and Thursday, making it the city's coldest three day spell since 2015. For July, it was the city's coldest three day spell in 26 years.


It wasn't just the capital city feeling the chill in Victoria this week. Ballarat only reached a top of 4.2 degrees on Wednesday, making it their coldest day since 1981 and their coldest July day on record.


Clearer skies across Victoria today will allow the mercury to climb a couple of degrees higher than the last few days, reaching 14 degrees in Melbourne and a balmy 11 in Ballarat.


Despite these warmer daytime temperatures, last night's clearer skies lead to a freezing start in some parts of the state this morning. Edenhope's low of -2.1 degrees at 6:29am today made this its coldest morning in a decade.
