You wouldn't be wrong in thinking it was cold this morning.
Rising from an overnight low of four degrees - with a wind chill factor of freezing - we will see a top of 12 degrees.
It will be partly cloudy and winds southerly 20 to 25 km/h tending southeasterly 15 to 20 km/h in the morning then becoming light in the middle of the day.
But power on, Ballaratians, the sun will be waiting for us on the weekend.
