There is also a chance of rain this afternoon. 

Tomorrow we will see a little more sunshine, but it will only be slightly warmer with a top of 17 degrees predicted.

AMBULANCE:

Ambulance Victoria reported a quiet night around Ballarat. 

However, nearby in Castlemaine, a man in his 40s was airlifted to Melbourne early this morning after his car rolled on the Midland Highway. 

Ambulance Victoria spokesman John Mullen said the man's car rolled about 1.10am, hitting a pole and ending up on its roof. 

Mr Mullen said bystanders pulled the man from the car before paramedics arrived. 

He was airlifted to the Alfred Hospital and is in a serious, but stable, condition.

 POLICE:

Ballarat police reported a quiet night with nothing to report. 

But police are urging motorists to take care on the roads following an avoidable accident in Eureka Street yesterday afternoon. 

Three people were taken to hospital after a car failed to give way at the intersection of King and Eureka Streets about 1.15pm.

FIRE:

Fire crews also reported a very quiet night. 

A station manager said there was an alarm at Reid's Guest this morning, but it was simply a woman having a shower.
