Turn on your heater, the warm weather is coming to a rude end

After a few days of lovely, bright sun, Melbourne's balmy May weather has come to a sudden end and the weather is forecast to remain cold all week.

Temperatures are forecast to sit around the 15 degree mark. Wednesday will be the coldest day with the harshest winds of 40 to 50km/h, in comparison with Monday and Tuesday's winds being just under 30km/h. The cold weather has come in from Southern Tasmania after we saw last week hit a top of 25.5 degrees on Thursday.

Senior forecaster Scott Williams predicts that Monday's top of 16 degrees will be marginally higher than the rest of the week, and that Melbournians will not be so pleased with the sudden shift of temperature.

"I think people will take a bit of time to acclimatise having been so warm," Mr Williams said.

The winds are predicted to settle down by the weekend and at this stage there is no rain expected for Sunday. Mr Williams said that the warm spell we've had this May is rare and that the upcoming weather is more typical for the last official month of autumn.

Next week is predicted to feel even chillier with overnight temperatures expected to be mostly in the single digits.
