With the last few days having maximum temperatures significantly below the average for April (20 C), it seems as though the wintery weather is here to stay and we are into the colder half of the year.

The weekend brought wet weather with a little bit of sun in spurts. It would have been a bit of a shock to the system for those who spent some time outside after a week couped up in the office. The temperatures will continue to drop as we move deeper into April with a mix of cold weather and milder days. Forecaster Dean Stewart said that “During the autumn months we can get spells of cold weather, but it’s not until winter starts that we will see longer runs of colder weather setting in."

Meanwhile, snow is falling on the Alps, a whole seven weeks before the official start of ski season. Temperatures at Mount Hotham are currently 2.5 degrees after falling as low as minus 4 degrees. Mount Buller also reported snow and temperatures below zero.

You never know with Melbourne when it's going to throw you a week of winter in the middle of autumn so it's best to be prepared. Make sure you have your heating system serviced to ensure it is running smoothly, providing you with sufficient heat on the colder days and guaranteeing the safety of you and loved ones against carbon monoxide poisoning.
