Two seasons in an hour

What next - snow in the CBD?

It seems anything is possible with Melbourne's fickle weather.

Yesterday afternoon, the temperature in the city plunged almost 13 degrees, from an unseasonal 34.5 degrees at 1.35pm to 21.8 degrees at 5.40pm.

The cool change was accompanied by these menacing clouds, which dumped 5.4 millimetres of rain.

It was the fourth day over 30 degrees so far this month.

Before the cool change:


And of course it was over as quickly as it came:

BTW, nice timelapse Dan
