Many residents will have woke up to the sound of rain this morning and it looks like it will continue throughout the day. 

We can expect a top of 16 degrees with some lighter showers as the day goes on. 

The weekend looks like producing similar weather with a strong chance of rain occurring every day until early next week. 


A woman has been sentenced to 12 months in youth detention following a series of knife attacks in Ballarat's CBD earlier this year. 

The court heard the woman  produced a Stanley knife from her bra and made a cut under the left eye of one member of a group after an argument broke out. 

Magistrate Ian von Einem described the crimes as  "very serious."


Ballarat fire crews had three call outs over night, however, all were quite minor. 

Firefighters had one call out to a false alarm and another to inpsect a burn-off early this morning. 

Crews were also called to Smythesdale to reports of fire in a Rotunda, however, were called off on the journey to the town. 


Nothing of interest to report from local paramedics. 


No delays have been listed for the Ballarat line so far this morning.

However, V/Line are warning residents coming from Ararat over the weekend to be aware of some changes. 

Track works mean coaches will replace some services between Ararat  and Southern Cross  this weekend with Ballarat running as normal.
