Melbourne's coldest morning since September

James Casey, Thursday May 23, 2013 - 13:11 EST

Melbourne shivered through its coldest morning since spring with
temperatures as much as five degrees below average.

The city experienced its coldest morning since the second day of
spring with a minimum of 5.6 degrees, three below average for May.
Bulleen bottomed out at just 0.9 degrees, also the coldest since early
September. Melbourne and Essendon Airports both dipped to just three
degrees, also five below average.

The low temperatures this morning caused fog in Melbourne's southeast,
reducing visibility to 200m at Mentone.

Clear skies and light winds under a high pressure ridge combined with
a cool air mass last night, allowing the mercury to plummet early this
morning.

The ridge will linger over Victoria again tonight, causing
temperatures to reach single figures again tomorrow morning. This is
likely to once again produce patches of morning fog.

Looking further ahead, an increase in cloud and moist onshore winds
should keep minimum temperatures above average over the weekend.
