If you're brave enough to venture outdoors today, remember to take a brolly. Scattered showers are predicted for the rest of the day, which is already off to a cold and drizzly start. A top temperature of just 10 degrees is forecast, with tomorrow expected to be similar. However, the rain is due to stop on Monday and maybe a little bit of sun will peek out early in the week.
While Ballarat police had a quiet night, two fatal accidents have occurred in Melbourne in the early hours of this morning. A man in his 20s died when he lost control of his Triumph motorcycle and crashed into a fence in Port Melbourne and another man was killed when a truck and a car collided on the Monash Freeway outbound lanes at Narre Warren around 4.20am.
Ballarat Fire Brigade recorded a very quiet night, with just a false alarm at Sovereign Hill at 7.27am.
Both Ambulance Victoria and the State Emergency Service also had little to report.
Due to Regional Rail Link works, buses are temporarily operating between Melbourne and both Ballarat and Wendouree stations until Tuesday, July 15.
ON THE AGENDA
