ANOTHER 10mm to 25mm of rain is expected in Wonthaggi tomorrow, Sunday, April 5, 2020, encouraging people to stick to the ‘Stay Home’ directive on coronavirus.

And while the weather is expected to improve through Wednesday (20 degrees cloudy) and Thursday (21 degrees sunny), it turns cooler again in time for the following weekend, with a shower or two returning.

Meanwhile, the first snows of the season arrived at Mt Baw Baw, Mt Hotham and Dinner Plain today (Saturday) although authorities there are already bracing themselves for no snow season in the winter of 2020, following on from the early closures of resorts in USA and Europe and some notable outbreaks of COVID-19 being traced to several snow resorts.

‘Uphill’ skiing is also being discouraged in most parts of the world due to the lack of rescue resources for backcountry freelancers.

Regardless of the weather, everyone should conform to the state directives of staying home except to attend essential work, buy food, exercise and seek medical attention. Safe distancing should be practiced at all times out of the home.
