Ballarat is in Spring in name only, with a top of 14 degrees, late showers and cloudy skies forecast today.
There is the chance of drizzle this morning but a few showers will sweep across the city later tonight. Winds will pick up speed to 30 km/h late this afternoon.
Ballarat police will tonight have a little extra help tackling poor driver behaviour in the city, when a booze bus comes to town.
The booze bus and it's accompanying group of visiting police will set up in various locations around Ballarat tonight. They will work in conjunction with Ballarat Highway Patrol.
Police say it's just another reason why drivers should never drink and drive and always assume there's a police car around every corner.
