Good morning Melbourne.

Chilly today with tops of 13 and hail on the cards.

  • A man who spent the night holed up in a Rosebud home surrounded by police has just been arrested.

    Officers from the Special Operations Group were called to Ocean Street at 10pm yesterday and spent the night negotiating with the man, who was taken into custody at around 6:30am.

    A woman escaped unharmed earlier this morning while officers reportedly stopped a second man from entering the address at 5:30am.

    Detectives are yet to confirm whether it's related to a nearby shooting on Sunday (pictured).

    The 31-year-old Mount Waverly victim passed away in hospital yesterday.

  • Victoria's wild weather won't die down today with the biggest snow dump of the year expected down to 400 metres.

    A "vigorous" weather system is expected to bring damaging winds and possible thunderstorms.

    The SES says there have been about 100 calls from help in the last day, mainly in Frankston and Dromana due to fallen trees.

  • The High Court in Melbourne will begin hearing cases to stop the same-sex marriage postal vote this morning.

    The Public Interest Advocacy Centre and the Human Rights Law Centre are both seeking to block the non-binding, non-compulsory vote which could potentially see marriage laws changed by the end of the year.

    They argue the $122 million vote is unconstitutional because it bypasses Parliament and is being funded by money allocated for "unforeseen costs".

  • Australia's oldest person has passed away at the tender age of 111.

    Victorian woman Marjorie Cooke, who is also the 73rd oldest, is believed to have died after contracting the flu.

    She lived through two world wars, the moon landing, the Whitlam dismissal and the digital revolution.
