The weather, currently.
Last night’s low of 12˚C felt like 7˚C thanks to all that wind and rain so you’d be forgiven if you had to keep your socks on. Today will be cloudy with a top of 17˚C. There will be a medium chance of showers, most likely in the afternoon and evening. There might even be a thunderstorm. Winds will be northwesterly at 25 to 35 km/h, tending westerly in the middle of the day, before decreasing to 20 to 25 km/h in the evening. There’s a strong wind warning for Western Port, Gippsland Lakes, West Coast, Central and East Gippsland Coasts.
