I am very novice in the topic of weather.... can someone pls explain why the last week has shown extremely cold temps across Vic rural areas (ie. Bendigo, Ballarat, Geelong etc below zero) having as low, and at times lower, than the AWS's at Vic ski resorts.
The old rule of 0.8 degrees per 100m of altitude has not been the case.

Because most of the cooling you see at night has been radiative cooling rather than a cool aire mass as such - so the air closest to the ground cools first.
