Currently in Melbourne — November 4th, 2022
Out comes the sunshine to dry up all the rain.

The weather, currently.

Partly cloudy... with very little chance of rain!

The long-awaited break from the rain has finally arrived. After an early morning low of 9°C, we are headed for a top of 18°C today with light winds and an almost negligible chance of rain. The UV index will be high at 8, so cover up when you (inevitably) head out to enjoy the dry weather. Saturday and Sunday will be dry and warm too, Saturday also starting with a low of 9°C before climbing to a glorious 22°C, and Sunday with a low of 12°C and a top of 25°C. What a relief.
