Cold snap signals winter's here

Shepparton to experience cold weather all this week.

CHLOE WARBURTON June 24, 2014 3:04am

Shepparton woke to a dreary and damp morning yesterday and the Bureau of Meteorology says we can expect more of the same this week.

The temperature made it to a maximum of 12.6°C, with a minimum of 9.4°C, and after a quick and furious storm in the afternoon that left some parts of Shepparton covered in hail, a total of 3.8mm of rain had fallen by 4.30pm.

Bureau of Meteorology duty forecaster Gary Missen said this week would be cold.

‘‘We’re forecasting temperatures in the very low teens and the minimum temperatures won’t make double digits,’’ he said.

‘‘It won’t be a warm week — winter has really hit. Over the next few days there won’t be a lot of rain until at least Friday, and we’re forecasting three to eight millimetres on Saturday.’’

Today will see a minimum of 4°C and a maximum of 12°C, with a few showers and gusty winds, with more of the same tomorrow, which will have a minimum of 7°C and a maximum of 14°C.

More showers are expected on Thursday and Friday with cloudy days and a maximum of 15°C on both days.
