Surfers flocked to Bells Beach to catch a wave, while 82 km / h wind bulged the east coast.

While the temperatures plummeted to 7C in the world-famous home of the Rip Curl Pro surfing competition, the winds felt the day like an ice-cold 3C.

But the cold conditions have attracted local surfers, who have benefited from the jerky surfing conditions and huge waves.

The westerly winds and haphazard rainfall during the day might give way to thunder and hail later in the afternoon, but surfers are still out of the cold in the meantime.

Weatherzone meteorologist Tom Hough told Daily Mail Australia that it is still mild compared to the depths of winter in Melbourne, but was probably the coldest day in the city since the beginning of September last year.

Blizzard conditions were also expected to continue in alpine areas such as Warnambool, Ballarat, Geelong, Melbourne, Traralgon and Bairnsdale.
