We all know Melbourne is a chilly place to live. Right now I am curled up under a knitted blanket like a small prawn, gripping on to my hot water bottle as if my life depends on it. Actually my partner has started calling my hot water bottle our third because it is so consistently in my clutches.
Honestly thank GOD for hot water bottles (I accidentally just typed ‘hot wattle battles’ which is stupid and funny) because this morning was the coldest Melbourne morning in four bloody years.
According to The Age, temperatures in the CBD dropped to 1.2 degrees around 6.30am. If you’re out in the ‘burbs it got even chillier, with temperatures dropping below 0 degrees at Melbourne Airport.
Victoria has faced its coldest morning of the year, with areas dipping to a low of 1 degree.
Many Victorians woke up to frost covering lawns and cars, as The Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe frost warning for Victoria’s Northern Country and the state’s Eastern regions. pic.twitter.com/OzLCV7AVBC
