Ballarat breakfast report: February 3


After the heat experienced yesterday, we are sure many of you are looking forward to the cool change expected to sweep across the district today. 

Today we can expect a top of 34 degrees, however, the change is expected during the afternoon meaning relief isn't too far away.

Some of the cooler weather is expected to continue with a  top of  21 degrees predicted for Tuesday and 29 on Wednesday. 


Ballarat Police experienced a quiet night with nothing of interest to report. 

In other parts of the state, police are preparing a report for the Coroner after the death of a child at Lysterfield Lake Park yesterday. 

The five-year-old boy was pulled from the water unconscious about 5pm and was unable to be revived.


Fire crews had a reasonably quiet night attending two false alarms and were also called to a leaking gas cylinder incident in Alfredton. 

Even with the cool change coming through, Senior Station Officer Shane Phillips said it was still important residents were aware of the restrictions in place. 

"Even though it is cooler there will be high winds so there is still a high fire danger," he said. 


Nothing of interest to report 


At this stage trains are running on time, however, the Ballarat line has been experiencing delays over the past couple of days due to heat restrictions. 


We are heading to Mount Clear Kindergarten to check out their refurbished building and new gardens.
