Cool, wet and windy in southwestern Australia

12:43 EDT

A strong cold front passing through WA today will cause temperatures to plummet across southwestern WA today.

It's official: Sunday is Melbourne's rainiest day of the week

12:34 EDT

It often seems like Melbourne is dry during much of the week, with rain always coming along to ruin your weekend, so Weatherzone decided to crunch the stats to determine whether weekends really are wetter in Melbourne, or whether that's an urban myth.  The results? Well, there's good news and there's bad news.
