Melbourne Just Survived Its Coldest June Day in 35 Years

Here's hoping that this weekend's low temps and winter solstice means we're through the worst of it.

If you thought yesterday was literally The Coldest Day Ever, it turns out you weren't being too dramatic. According to the Bureau of Meteorology, Melbourne yesterday shivered through its coldest June day since 1983 (and coldest overall in almost two years), maxing out at 9.6 degrees around 3.30pm. Most parts of the state were 3–7 degrees below average for this time of the year, with the highest recorded temperature a frosty 14 degrees in Gippsland. Mt Hotham dipped as low as -6 degrees.

The city also copped some pretty fierce fog, which hung around well into the day in some northeastern suburbs, the Yarra Valley and parts of Port Phillip Bay. The fog extended into the morning but has since cleared up.

That said, today's temperatures are looking a little cosier than the weekend's, with a maximum 15 degrees forecast for Melbourne today and the haze and fog clearing to a healthy serve of sunshine this afternoon. The rest of the week is also looking up, with peaks of 15 and 16 degrees, before Friday and Saturday each reach a sunny top of 17. Classic Melbourne.
