If you struggled through this morning's weather - we've got some bad news.

It's predicted to drop to just one degree in Melbourne overnight - breaking decades old records.

Bureau of Meteorology Climatologist, Dr Blair Trewin, said this morning's this morning's 1.9 °C was Melbourne's coldest morning so late in the year, since 1970.

While, Melbourne Airport's -0.4 °C was the sites coldest in August since -0.8 °C on 5 August 1997. The coldest in the state this morning was -9.3 °C at Mount Hotham - the coldest at this site since last August.

If the forecast of 1 degree for tonight is correct, it will be the first instance of consecutive lower than 2 degree nights so late in the season since the 23rd and 24th September 1945 - and it will potentially be the coldest morning so late in season for Melbourne since 1959 (when it dropped to 1.2 degrees on September 2).
