Spring-like temperatures will be a welcome change to Melbourne's residents but it won't last long as another wintery blast is expected to hit the city before the week's end.
For the first half of the working week each day should see a top near the season's average. Wednesday may even see the first time reaching 18 degrees in more than a month. It won't be quite the warmth some are hoping for as northerly winds will be fresh enough to bring some chill.
Showers will develop and winds will increase on Wednesday evening ahead of a cold front which will rattle the windows overnight. The strong winds on Thursday and Friday will be due to the development of a deep low pressure system forming in the Bight. These wet and wild conditions could persist into the weekend.
