If you’re planning on going to the Anzac Day blockbuster between Essendon and Collingwood on Tuesday, make sure you rug up!

The weather forecast isn’t too pretty. There’s a very high chance (90%) of rain in Melbourne and even the chance of a thunderstorm in the morning.

The Bureau of Meteorology is expecting a top temperature of 19 degrees.

Based on Essendon’s wet weather performance against Carlton a few weeks ago, this forecast could boost Collingwood’s chances of a victory.

The Bombers struggled to adapt to the conditions against the lowly Blues in Round 3 and lost by 15 points.

The Magpies, and their under-fire coach Nathan Buckley, are in desperate need of a win to keep their finals hopes in tact after starting the season 1-3.
