Good Morning Bendigo - welcome to final day of July for 2014!
Well, the weather bureau isn't painting a nice picture for today - it's baton down the hatches time with high winds, rain and even snow forecast for Macedon way.
We're in for a top of 16.
If you think today's bad, sorry to report Friday's top will be 9 and Saturday and Sunday morning they're predicting minimums of -2. Great.
The live line status shows it's a green light for Bendigo services so far this morning.
