Ballarat swelters overnight with cool change set to hit


It's been an uncomfortably hot night in Ballarat

At midnight it was still 28 degrees with the mercury only falling to 21C at 4.30am
We can expect a blazing top of 37C today before a cool change rolls in late afternoon, bringing with it a nearly100% chance of heavy rain fall. Winds will be northwest to northeasterly at 25 to 35 km/h tending southwesterly in the late afternoon then becoming light in the late evening.
Both Mildura and Melbourne today are expected to hit 39C.
Australia Day tomorrow will be a whole lot more comfortable in Ballarat with a top of 20 degrees forecast along with showers.
A total fire ban is in place for the North of the state today which excludes Ballarat and the Central District with the CFA on high alert.
