According to the forecast of the Bureau of Meteorology, a blast of cold air will strike Melbourne in the afternoon and pass through the city. The director of the State Emergency Management Center further warned that the high wind speed in the afternoon will be as high as 100 kilometers per hour. "The people celebrating Marseille must be careful to prevent any possible accidents and tragedies."
