The Weather in Melbourne is fairly predictable throughout the year, however the Melbourne climate is well known for its changeable weather conditions.

The reason for this is because it is situated on the boundary of 2 unique areas; one being the hot inland areas of the dry deserts and the other the cold southern ocean.

Melbourne has to be the best city in Australia to actually see the seasons change.

This is something that anyone who has lived here and has since moved away, misses terribly about their old home town.

In this section I will discuss each month of the year so that you can get an idea of what you can expect from the weather in Melbourne.

A Tip for when you visit Melbourne is to be prepared for any sort of Melbourne weather conditions - wear layers of clothing that you can remove as the day warms up and don't forget to take your umbrella.

In the Spring and Summer months very strong cold fronts can form which can cause all sorts of severe storms.

Sometimes these storms are accompanied with wild gales, loud thunder and wild electric displays.

When the temperature drops heavy rain can be expected and sometimes rather large hail can hit the city and surrounding suburbs.

Flash flooding is quite a common occurrence however these waters soon find their way back out into Port Phillip Bay.

Be Prepared For 4 Seasons In One Day

Melbourne Summers are noted for their occasional extreme heat.

Bush fires are a constant danger and most times there is a need for fire bans so as to protect the state.

Melbourne weather in Summer time is the best time to experience our changeable weather, 4 seasons in one day!

This happens when Cold winds cross the state and if the day has been a typical dry hot one then this climatic mix can create showers that sometimes carry massive hail.

The temperature drops dramatically but once the storm has passed the temperature soon starts to rise back up to where it was before...quite an experience!

Melbourne experiences frosts and fog in Winter with a very rare occurrence of what would more commonly be called sleet rather than snow now and again.

This can occur more into the Dandenong and Otway Ranges that surround the city.
