Weather Resources

We often smile as it unfolds that the Melbourne and Mornington Peninsula region can have four seasons in one day, but these small changes in weather generally do not effect diving. If rain is forecast, it doesn't matter as you're already planning to get wet! When it's raining you will often find that the wind dies down and surface conditions improve.
