Cast aside those scarves, coats and umbrellas Melburnians.

The city has taken extreme pity on her long-suffering, vitamin-D-deficient residents and has decided to part the clouds, if only for a day.

The mercury is set to climb to 26 degrees today.

(Yes, we’re excited.)

It’s not often we extend gratitude to our northern cousins, but it’s warmer air from NSW that is responsible for the welcome change.

However, Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Richard Carlyon says the transition will not be instant.

“It may take a little while for that temperature to really rise,” he warned.

“It will be a cool start, 12 degrees [was] the overnight low.”

Come lunchtime however, it will be time to take off the cardigan, expose those arms and bask in the sunshine.

“It won’t be until the middle of the day we will see the northerly wind and that will send the temperature into the 20s … and then peaking late in the afternoon,” Mr Carlyon said.

The warm conditions are set to last late into the night, with the temperatures in the 20s for most of the evening.

It may come as a shock to Melburnians who this week have become accustomed to dodging freak (but brief) hail storms, bursts of torrential rain and gale-force winds throughout the day.

So has spring finally sprung?

Not quite.

The wintry chill will return tomorrow.

“We are expecting a top of 24 degrees on Friday, but it will be cooler in the afternoon after a front has moved through, ” Mr Carlyon said.

“So the warm weather will be relatively short-lived.”

On Saturday, Melburnians can expect a low of 12 degrees and a top of 18.

“It bounces again on Sunday, back to 23 degrees,” Mr Carlyon said.

He said it will be downhill from there, with a top of 17 on Monday, while Tuesday and Wednesday will see temperatures around 16 degrees.

Back to winter next week

It will be a similar pattern in the rest of the state.

Mildura is set to hit a top of 29 degrees on Thursday.

“But everywhere from Monday to Wednesday will be 13 to 17 degrees,” Mr Carlyon said.
