NO ONE In VIC Wants To Hear This Latest Weather Warning
Victorians have been advised to rug up and stay indoors as a cold front moves across the state this weekend, with the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) warning there is no real warmth expected until November.
Yes, November. It's close, but not close enough for some!
Weather reports say a low pressure system has moved up from Tasmania, bringing gusty winds, rain and hail to central and eastern districts, and sow down to 800 metres.
Senior forecaster Stephen King told ABC News, it would remain bleak in Melbourne all weekend and there was more cold air on the way.
"Melbourne's in the grip of a cold outburst," he said.
"For days below about 14 degrees we tend to get them every three to six years and they're usually in the first half of October.
"So I guess for the second half of October, it may be a little bit unusual, we maybe get them every 10 years or so.
"It's a pretty bleak weekend so best to just stay indoors and rug up."
"Things do improve during the week but another weak front comes through bringing us back to the teens, so not quite getting up to the high 20s or early 30s.
"Maybe we'll have to wait until November for that."
