Recent Events
Sunday was dry and mostly sunny across Victoria, with no significant rainfall
recorded in the 24 hours to 9am.

Overnight minimum temperatures were a degree or two below the November average
last night in most areas, but were close to or just above average in the far
north. Generally minima dropped to between 7 and 10 degrees. The lowest minimum
was 4 degrees at Mt Hotham Airport and Warrnambool, while the highest was 15
degrees at Walpeup.

Patchy fog developed through the early part of this morning, clearing to a dry
and mostly sunny day. No significant rainfall was recorded today. Winds were
generally light and variable, with moderate easterly afternoon sea breezes
about the exposed coasts.

Maximum temperatures to 4pm were 2 to 5 degrees above the November average in
most parts, and up to 7 degrees above average across the Greater Melbourne
area. The exposed coasts were the exception, with afternoon sea breezes keeping
maxima slightly below average. Maxima reached 25 to 31 degrees in most areas,
but only 19 to 23 degrees about the exposed coasts. The lowest maximum recorded
today was 13 degrees at Falls Creek, and the highest was 32 degrees at Walpeup,
Hopetoun, and Longerenong.

Melbourne's temperature ranged from a minimum of 10.1 degrees at 5:08am to a
maximum of 28.7 degrees at 2:27pm. No rainfall was observed in the city gauge
in the 31 hours to 4pm today.

Explanatory Notes
A high pressure system east of Tasmania extends a ridge along the NSW coast.
The high will continue moving east on Tuesday as a low pressure trough
approaches from the west. The trough is forecast to enter Victoria on
Wednesday, then move over eastern Victoria during Thursday as a high pressure
ridge extends over western Victoria and a cold front crosses Tasmania. The
front and trough are forecast to clear away to the east on Friday as the ridge
extends across southern Victoria.
