The Department of Health and Human Services is monitoring weather forecasts in Victoria from June to August 2018 as part of the Cold Weather Alert System.

The Cold Weather Alert Status table shows whether a weather forecast district is near, at or above the cold weather threshold for a particular day. The threshold considers the minimum (overnight) temperature, total daily rainfall and top daily wind speed.

There are five statuses for the forecasts:

  1. A dash (-) means the weather forecast is below threshold.
  2. 'Near threshold' means the threshold is close to being met
  3. 'At threshold' means the threshold has been met.
  4. 'Above threshold' means the threshold has been exceeded
  5. 'Alert issued' means the means that a cold weather alert has been issued for that day.

Forecasts are provided for the next five days (not the current day).
