Some may wondering if winter has already arrived across much of Victoria with most places not even managing double figures last night.
Tatura in the Northern Country dropped to chilly 1.5 degrees, their coldest night this early in the year in 14 years. Melbourne fell to 7.3 degrees, the last time it was colder this early in the year was 1996. Sale recorded 1.1 degrees their coldest night this early in 46 years. The lowest recorded temperature last night in Victoria was minus 3 at Mt Hotham, nearly seven below average.
