The cold night developed as the skies cleared and the winds became light under a building high pressure settled over the southeast.

A warmer airmass will start to build over VIC tomorrow under northerly winds, with Thursday likely to send the thermometer soaring. Temperatures are set to reach into the mid thirties over northern parts, it will be more mild in the south, but still seeing temperatures approaching the high twenties.

A southerly change later on Thursday evening will bring some cooling with showers expected over the southern parts of state on Friday.
