Winter off to chilly, damp start

Drizzling rain, light winds and a freezing start to the morning – typical winter conditions.

Sunday’s first day of the season showcased what we can expect to be typical weather for the next couple of months. 

Weatherzone meteorologist Kim Westcott said the average maximum temperature for June was 11 degrees, meaning any residents who haven’t pulled out their winter wardrobe yet had better do so soon. 

On Sunday Ballarat experienced a top of 14 degrees with no sunshine to break up the cold breeze.

However, Ms Westcott said  might some sunshine could be seen towards the end of the week, with Friday looking like the best chance.

For those who have early mornings starts, Thursday seems like being the biggest chance of a frost, so be sure to allow enough time to clean the ice from the car before heading to work. 

Ms Westcott said the average rainfall for June was 63 millimetres, with rain expected on 18 days of the month.
