The city woke to the coldest morning of the week, with a chilly 3 degrees.
The coldest is yet to come but Ballarat has certainly departed from autumn.
Again, partly cloudy with a possible shower in the afternoon. A top of 14 degrees.
Winds southwesterly and light.
Police reports are pending.
Ballarat East was the hot spot for Ballarat fire crews over night.
Two fire crews attended an rubbish bonfire in Eureka Street just after 7.30pm on Thursday.
It was swiftly brought under control.
Ballarat City Leading Officer Jarryd Howlett urged residents to comply to regulations when they are conducting burn offs.
An hour later, two fire crews were again called to a Ballarat East property for a false alarm after a reported fire in a wall.
The concern came after the occupant of the home cleaned the filter on her heater.
"Coming into the winter months residents need to ensure the filters are clean on their heaters," Leading Officer Howlett said.
Paramedics attended no trauma incidents in the region.
Due to V/Line track works, coaches will replace some services between Ararat and Melbourne from Saturday 7 June until Wednesday 11 June.
Ballarat services will run as normal.
