It has been a wet morning across southern parts of Victoria, with some locations recording their heaviest rain in a few months.
A trough moved through the state this morning in the wake of a cold front, bringing another burst of showers.
The most rain fell across the West and South Gippsland and eastern parts of the Central district, with widespread falls of between 15 and 30mm.
Traralgon in South Gippsland received the highest fall in the state, recording 57mm, with several locations recording their highest daily totals since June. Cerberus and Rhyll recorded 23mm and 30mm respectively, their heaviest rain since June. Phillip Island recorded 32mm, their highest since May.
While the state's capital also received some showers this morning, the city largely escaped with only 9mm. However, this would have made for a gloomy trip to work, with the umbrella undoubtedly coming in handy.
Showers will rapidly clear the state today as a high moves over southeastern Australia. This will mean a bright and sunny weekend for most Victorians. However, if you intend on heading out early in the morning bring a jumper, as mornings will be chilly.
