Ballarat breakfast report: December 11


Anyone would think summer is never going to arrive if we keep having days like this. 

Expect another cold day today with possible showers in the morning. These showers should clear in the afternoon for a better end to the day. 

A maximum temperature of 17 degrees is predicted. 

We can expect some improvement tomorrow with no showers currently being predicted.


Another quiet night in Ballarat last night with police having nothing to report. 

However, police are reminding drivers to be careful on roads and that the Summer Stay road enforcement campaign is still underway which is a two month blitz to reduce road trauma over the holiday season. 

In the first stage of the campaign, 30 drink drivers were caught in Ballarat in just three weeks.

In other news, two drivers were picked up by police last night after they were caught speeding.

The first driver was caught in Dandenong South travelling at 128 kilometres per hour in a 60km/h zone.

The other driver was caught in Cranbourne doing 127 km/h in an 80 km/h zone and also had a blood alcohol reading of 0.068.


It was a quiet night across the region with Ballarat City Fire Brigade having no call outs. 


No delays are expected for Ballarat trains this morning. 


Today we are heading out to St Alupius Parish School where students will be getting a visit from Edgars Mission who are a bringing a pig and a chicken to show the pupils. The school raised funds for the charity which looks after rescued farm animals.
