The sun is out over Melbourne with temperatures warming-up, but a front will bring a cooler change from the middle of the week.
Northerly winds are developing over the state and will filter a warmer airmass into Melbourne during the next few days. Temperatures will climb into the upper teens on both Tuesday and Wednesday, which is around four above the August average.
It will only be a short lived mild spell as showers will develop on Wednesday afternoon with yet another cold front bringing strong westerly winds.
Showers will continue into Thursday with the potential for hail and thunderstorms. Temperatures will also be much cooler with an expected top of 13 degrees, six below what we will experience during the next few days.
Further ahead, next weekend looks like a bright one with a high pressure system bringing clear skies.
